Rustenburg – The Rustenburg Rapid Transport (RRT) system is already improving the well-being of people from the various communities it will be operating in once it is up and running.

With the construction of the new transport system progressing well, a team from the RRT visited an orphanage and an old age home on Monday 3 August and donated grocery packs. Rustenburg’s Member of the Mayoral Committee (MMC) for roads and transport Lucky Kgaladi together with councillors Obert Mogkatle, Lefyedi Thabiso and Mogotsi Banda were part of the team. Residents from Otshepeng Old Age Home and Kwena-Mosadi Community Centre could not hide their happiness as they received the groceries.

Otshepeng Old Age Home and Kwena-Mosadi Community Centre, located in the Tlaseng and Bobuantja villages respectively, provide care and support to many elderly persons and children who cannot fend for themselves.

Speaking shortly after the handovers, councillor Banda said the RRT prioritises initiatives that uplift communities. “We are delighted to be engaging with our stakeholders. These grocery packs will assist the homes – especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are grateful that we could lend a helping hand.”
