Kouga revamps home of 108-year-old

30 July 2018
One of Kouga’s oldest residents was showered with love on Nelson Mandela Day last week. The house of Rosie Napu (108), believed to be the oldest resident of KwaNomzamo at Humansdorp, was given a complete revamp by Kouga Municipality. Walls were painted and new flooring was installed. An additional dry wall was also built in the house to create a separate room for the toilet, which was previously open for all to see. Napu is originally from the Loerie area and has been living in KwaNomzamo for longer than she can remember. Moral Regeneration Movement chairman Siyabonga Tambo, Executive Mayor Horatio Hendricks and Ward Councillor Lefty Vumazonke were part of the team who worked on the house.
