Isaiah 58:10-11 New King James Version (NKJV)

10 If you extend your soul to the hungry
And satisfy the afflicted soul,
Then your light shall dawn in the darkness,
And your darkness shall be as the noonday.
11 The Lord will guide you continually,
And satisfy your soul in drought,
And strengthen your bones;
You shall be like a watered garden,
And like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail.


Rustenburg – Casual workers and people who were laid off are severely affected as companies countrywide closed their doors to comply with lockdown regulations announced by President Cyril Ramaphosa on 27 March.

Every morning, Rustenburg do-gooders are giving food to these vulnerable people who are gathering in small groups in the central business district (CBD). Touched by the plight of these people who are now unable to work and buy what they need, Bothwell Muyambo, Archibald Nyanyiwa, Leonard Makava, Tseko Rantai, Thabo Moloi, Tsitsi Muyambo, Sandra Muyambo, Sarike Horn, Omolemo Tawana and Annemarie Niewenhuis are extending a helping hand.  

Since the beginning of May this year, they have been providing tea, coffee and sandwiches every day to about 100 people in the CBD, Protea Park, and Safari Gardens.

“Many of us are teachers while some are employed in other fields. We have been fortunate enough to remain employed during the lockdown and realised that many people have not been that fortunate,” Muyambo told Platinum Weekly. “Each morning, we drive around and give coffee, tea and sandwiches to those in need. It is our way of assisting them to get through the day.”

For more information, contact Muyambo on 073 797 2781 or Nyanyiwa on 073 586 6597. Alternatively, drop an email to
