THABAZIMBI – Anglo American’s decision to join the children of Smash Block for Mandela Day was deliberately taken because of Madiba’s love of children, Bruce Mashapa, financial manager at Anglo, told the approximately 100 children attending an event organized by Thabang’s Community Care Centre in Smash Block. Along with the ward councillor, ward committee, Department of Social Development, clinic staff, Isibindi care workers, Cronimet recycling team, Thabang and Anglo American the children celebrated Mandela Day with dances, songs and poems for Madiba and a hearty meal. A truck load full of maize meal, beans, samp and sardines was donated by Anglo American.
