Restore Bronville

Heinrich April, Facebook:

I grew up in Bronville in the dusty streets of Engelstraat. We only relocated once, when my late mother (Juffrou April) received a house from the state.

We moved to G?olding Street, where I practically grew up.

I spend this weekend at home and I literally came to tears, as the Bronville I grew up in is not the Bronville my people are experiencing right now.

Electricity outages, spilled sewage and an unbearable stench hanging over Old Bronville, roads with huge potholes – and I saw many young men sitting on corners without employment.

I stopped here and there and chatted to a few that I know, and I could sense the hopelessness that has engulfed my homies.

I realised that lots needs to be done to restore this former mining town’s residence and I have a role to play, as so many of us do.

I made up my mind that I will consciously start to make plans and in my circles of influence lobby others to do the same, to lift our communities up, one by one, street by street, town by town, city to city.

We cannot rest until we become the change we want to see.

I challenge anyone of you who loves Bronville to join me in this quest to make Bronville great again.

The future depends on us.
