GRAAFF-REI­NET — A­bout a week ago, Lie­sl de la Har­pe of Ka­roo Ca­tch ap­pro­a­ched the Dr Bey­ers Nau­de Mu­ni­ci­pa­li­ty with an of­fer of packs of fish sausa­ges for Coun­cil­lors to use for the be­ne­fit of com­mu­ni­ty mem­bers as part of t­heir Man­de­la Day pro­gram­me.

Ka­roo Ca­tch is an a­qua­cul­tu­re pro­ject which breeds cat­fish for the food mar­ket. T­hey ha­ve re­cent­ly be­gun pro­ces­sing the fish that t­hey pro­du­ce and ha­ve a wi­de ran­ge of fish pro­ducts that t­hey are now a­ble to mar­ket lo­cal­ly. Due to the fact that t­hey are re­pack­a­ging t­heir fish sausa­ges, t­hey de­ci­ded to do­na­te the sausa­ges still in the old pack­a­ging to needy mem­bers of the Dr Bey­ers Nau­de mu­ni­ci­pal a­rea.

On he­a­ring of the of­fer from Ka­roo Ca­tch, Cl­lr Sa­man­tha Gra­ham ap­pro­a­ched the DA Coun­cil­lors to es­ta­blish who would be in­te­rested in ta­king ad­van­ta­ge of this ge­ne­rous of­fer. The re­spon­se was fan­tas­tic and with the o­ver 200kgs of fish sausa­ges do­na­ted by Ka­roo Ca­tch, ma­ny e­vents we­re held by DA coun­cil­lors on Man­de­la Day.

The two coun­cil­lors in Aberdeen de­li­ver­ed packs of sausa­ges and cook­ed so­me to pro­vi­de hot me­als to needy fa­mi­lies.

In Nieu-bet­hes­da, Cl­lr Lin­da Bo­tha han­ded out bis­cuits to the child­ren in Pie­naar­sig, Nieu­bet­hes­da, as well as fish sausa­ges to com­mu­ni­ty mem­bers and jer­seys, be­a­nies, blan­kets and bed socks to the el­der­ly.

Cl­lr El­dan Ca­ro­lus han­ded out fish sausa­ges to com­mu­ni­ty mem­bers in Riem­vas­maak, Cl­lr G­len­da Mac­ke­li­na, Ri­car­do S­mith and the Ward 5 Branch han­ded out sausa­ges and clo­thing to com­mu­ni­ty mem­bers. In U­ma­si­zak­he, Cl­lr Sa­man­tha Gra­ham and her acti­vis­ts de­li­ver­ed sausa­ge packs to the c­li­nic staff and pa­tients, so­me of the CWP Te­ams and el­der­ly and in­firm com­mu­ni­ty mem­bers. A te­am of acti­vis­ts, or­ga­ni­sed by Cl­lr Joy Wil­li­ams, em­bar­ked on a cle­an-up cam­paign in B­ree S­treet in As­her­vil­le, af­ter which t­hey han­ded out lo­a­ves of bre­ad do­na­ted by Mr Bre­ad and fish sausa­ges from Ka­roo Ca­tch. The Dr Bey­ers Nau­de Con­sti­tu­en­cy Le­a­der for the DA, Hon Vic­ky K­noet­ze MPL got do­wn and dir­ty in a cle­an-up cam­paign with Cl­lr Da­nie Be­zui­den­hout and his te­am in S­tey­ter­vil­le.

It was an ex­tre­me­ly success­ful Man­de­la Day and no small part of that was due to the ex­tre­me ge­n­ero­si­ty of

Ka­roo Ca­tch.
