Executive Mayor takes Orphans to the Zoo


The Office of the WRDM Executive Mayor, Cllr Mpho Nawa organized a visit for 330 orphans to the Johannesburg Zoo as an early Christmas gift.  The orphans were from different orphanages around the West Rand viz. Mogale City, Merafong City, Randfontein and Westonaria.  Thirty three (33) centres were identified and each centre was represented by ten kids. They were accompanied by their caregivers. The trip was a success as kids had so much fun and could not feel the rainy weather.   They played different games and for some it was a memorable outing as they were visiting the zoo for the very first time, thanks to the Executive Mayor.  The office of the Mayor in partnership with the West Rand Department of Health and Social Development pampered the kids with toys to make their day exciting and fun-filled. 

Cllr Nawa indicated that this would be an annual event for the kids as they get such chances once in a while.  Cllr Nawa was happy with the way the centres are co-operating with his office in ensuring that this special event becomes a success.
