The recent heavy rainfall in the John Taolo Gaetsewe (JTG) District Municipality has left a trail of destruction with devastating effects on its residents.

Residents of the Seven Miles Village, located within the Ga-Segonyana Local Municipality, bore the brunt of the heavy rainfall, which left many families displaced and in need of basic living essentials such as mattresses, blankets and food.

Kalagadi Manganese, in its endeavour to assist the affected residents, donated more than 110 blankets and mattresses to the displaced families of Seven Miles on Monday, 11 January.

This donation was received in the presence of Kgosi Ernest Setlhodi, Neo George Masegela, mayor of Ga-Segonyana, and councillor Nkagisang Ngesi.

They encouraged the guests, thanked the donors and made a commitment to assist the members of the community to salvage what has been lost.

Kalagadi Manganese is a black women-led South African mining company founded in 2007.

The company operates a mine, located at the Kalahari Basin in the Northern Cape, which boasts the largest sinter plant in the world.

The JTG District Municipality is one of the five districts of the Northern Cape with its seat of authority in Kuruman.

This district municipality boasts three local municipalities – Gamagara, Ga-Segonyana and Joe Morolong.
