Vulindlela members extend help to needy senior citizen

Showing a united front, members of Vulindlela police station and Community Policing Forum offered a helping hand to a needy senior citizen at NU12, Mdantsane today.

The recipient of this good gesture, Temba Njikelana, 70 years old is a pensioner who has been volunteering at Vulindlela policing for the past five years. He was washing the vehicles, doing garden services, cleaning the yard without expecting any compensation.

The SAPS members were touched by the pensioner's leaving condition. They gathered money amongst themselves and throughout the little sponsors they received and bought paint, bed, sofas, blankets, curtains, tiles, cupboard, grocery and other household contents. They offered their labouring services by painting the house inside out.

The retired former Vulindlela station commander, Lt Colonel Monde Mgolodela also joined hands with the current personnel by contributing immensely to this good cause. Once a police official always a police official, his blood is still blue although he has retired.

Vulindlela Acting Station Commander, Captain Ayanda Ndiyakrokra's involvement in identifying areas in the community that need assistance of any form and has not only uplifted the image of the station but has shown the strength and unity of his members.

He together with his team, initiated this good work. In his own words he said, "My gratitude goes to my members and the CPF members for their support in our initiatives aimed at fighting crime, especially crimes against children and the elderly."

The senior citizen, Temba Njikelana was so emotional as he was doing his reply speech, "I would like to thank the SAPS, CPF members for their generosity. I did not even expect this, I was indeed cought by surprise. May God richly bless you and your families in all your future endeavours."
