Christmas came early for Luza Jenamo a Francistown renowned beggar and mentally challenged woman when she received a donation of a house from the Catholic Church last Friday.
The Catholic Church youth team set aside its religious affiliation when they built and donated a two and half house for Jenamo who is a member of the Zion Christian Church (ZCC) as part of the church’s response to President Khama’s appeal to house the homeless.
The house valued at P50 000 was built at Phase VI location in Francistown where Jenamo used to stay in a dilapidated structure with her siblings.
Guest speaker at the handing over of the donation, Francistown mayor, James Kgalajwe, said the Catholic Church has long been a partner in developing the country through building schools and other social services.
Full of smiles Jemano thanked the church for building the house for her and promised to look after it well.
“I am very happy because the church has decided to build me a nice house with running water where I can lively happily with my siblings,” she asid..
Also at the event was Father Sylvester Kaemana from the Catholic Church and the area councillor Rauboy Mpuang who also thanked the church for its humble gesture.
