David Mabusana Mahlangu was born in Ntwane, Limpopo and later moved to Kwaggafontein, Mpumalanga. Mahlangu says that he sometimes gets a disability grant from the government.

Mahlangu says that things were better when the late Nelson Mandela was still president.

“Things were better back then compared to now. Our lives were better when Nelson Mandela was still alive. There is no hope with the current leadership. Back then we were able to farm, but now we don’t even have water and look at the place we are staying in.”

He says that they need proper roads and houses.

“We need proper shelter, water and roads. They tried with the high mass lights but we need water because water is life. We stay in dilapidated houses. We applied for an RDP house long time ago, but nothing has happened.”
