Prayer for peace in Marikana
Rustenburg/ Wonderkop – The North West Provincial Government took a leading role in encouraging social cohesion and restoring peace and stability in the Wonderkop and Marikana areas through several interventions.
To this end, a day of prayer involving community members and small business owners was held at the Wonderkop sport grounds on Saturday 4 May. During the prayer service, pastors prayed against all forms of social ills and for peace and stability.
North West premier Tebogo Mokgoro, who gave an assurance that the provincial government would respond to the service delivery challenges facing people in the area, also launched a soccer tournament that will become an annual event.
Evelyn Mmekwe, owner of Bonolo Soup Kitchen (which provided soup to the striking Lonmin mine workers in 2012 during the runup to the Marikana shootings) was presented with a cheque of R1.8 million in support of her project.
Uniforms, toiletries and sanitary pads were also handed over to the disadvantaged children in the area by the North West department of social development.
