TOUCHED by the plight of an elderly grandmother whose home was seriously damaged after a street lamp fell on top of it, a Port Elizabeth law firm has come to her assistance.

Earlier this year, Nomsa Soyana’s Kwazakhele house was split in half and she has had no luck in recouping damages from the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality to fix her home.

And, while the pole has long since been removed, the 77-year-old grandmother’s Mandleni Street home in Kwazakhele has neither been repaired by the municipality nor damages paid.

Now, law firm Raymond Bojanic and Associates has offered to help Soyana. – Yoliswa Sobuwa

    Surely the municipality should have fixed the house if it was their lamp that caused the damage? If it was money for an A.N.C. booze up it would have been handed over already!
