Dikgwetlho tse di fitlhelwang ke bagolofadi ko ditikwatikweng mo dinakong tsa sephetephete le Boitumelo Jenya–Paraplegic

Today marks the fourth day of the national Lock down in aim of arresting the spread of the current pandemic which has held the whole country at ransom, Coronavirus, or Covid-19 as it is popularly known.
It is very much unfortunate that majority of South Africans are relatively poor, living on hand-to0mouth basis and constantly have to rely on the government basic necessities like health care, water and sanitation, and housing as well. This are the groups that currently do form very long ques at shopping centres trying to buy necessities, even on the fourth day of the national lock down.
Amongst the people who should really be considered at such kind of times are the disabled people, having to manage with their special needs amongst busy panicking crowds. Such kind of challenges that disabled people may face during such times is not finding packing amongst others, and having to deal with long ques of people who happen to be impatient at that times.
To learn more about challenges faced by the disabled people during such times, we talk with Miss Boitumelo Jenya, a paraplegic mother of 1 from Rusternburg.

Botlhokwa ba ditshwanelo tsa botho le Mr Malesela Vincent Rantji – Paraplegic Businessman

In the past 26 years democracy the South African government together with dedicated and highly compatriotic citizens have been hard at work ensuring that all South Africans regardles of race, ethnicity or skin colour get full access to human rights and make good use of them.
The human rights are meant or intended to help simplify lives of citizens, offer them protection and dignity for them as humans.
Indeed the hard dedicated and committed work has paid off, human rights are accessed by all, and used to the fullest. The same applies with disabled people. Malesela Vincent Rantji has been a paraplegic for the past 19 years. Throughout all his life as a paraplegic he has been able to live the exact life that the human rights afford all citizens regardless of physical causalities.

Dikgwetlho tsa go godisa ngwana wa seemo sa Cerebral Palsy

It has been said and widely agreed upon that the ability to carry and give to this earth life is one of the greatest gifts or blessings one can ever receive from the powers above. Being a parent is considered as one of those life’s greatest experiences. Though the experience may not be so great to those who find themselves facing a mammoth tasking of parenting children with various dissability conditions.
Having a disabled child to take care of as a parent may be a challenge to others as they may be exposed to that kind of a dissability condition for the first time. The very same applied with Ms Mmathapelo Letimela.
10 years ago Mmathapelo gave birth to a beautiful baby boy who at a later stage upon the developmental phases of a baby showed signs of the inability to do anything for himself. The 31 years old single mother had to face the challenge of raising a child with Cerebral Palsy.

Go matlafatsa bana ke batho ba go tshela ka seemo sa boswafe le Rre Mr Mpho Tjope – Albinism Advocacy for Access

Life constantly throws challenges at us, of various ways and means. Often we find ourselves struggling with the kinds of challenges that may be just small waters or a walk in the park for others.
Discrimination and stigmatizing is still rising as a serious challenge facing many disabled people, more specifically the Albinism community. Many children living with Albinism have had to face various challenges, worst of them all being a possible threat to their lives, notoriously known as muti killings. Fortunately South Africa and other parts of the world have taken a firm stand against this barbaric act and condemned it in the strongest terms.
Now the recent challenge to emerge is the issue of children with Albinism having to drop out of schools because of the constant stigmatization and emotional abuse they are constantly subjected to.
After having realized this ongoing problem, one good Samaritan decided to establish and organization that will focus solely on children living with albinism, encouraging and motivating them to always strive hard to make the best out of their situations.

Botlhokwa ba go itse ditshwanelo tsa gago jaaka o le motho yo nang le bogole le Mr Mooketsa Tsatsane – Amputee

It is very important for one to stand their ground, know their rights and stand them well. This will thus avoid any exploitation from labour or trading sector and ensures that one is able to have what they are rightfully entitled to.
Such kind of basic knowledge about human rights has helped one Mooketsa Tsatsane, the 40 years old husband and father encountered an incident in the work place a little less than seven years ago which saw him suffering a right leg amputation.
Like many others, Mr Tsatsane went through the required treatment processes of such kind of incidents, and after undergoing all procedures as he was ready to go back to work that where he met unexpected changes, he was told that due to his injuries he could no longer in good standing for his previous job descriptions and therefore had to be redeployed as a security officer. As a well-informed man about his rights, Mr Tsatsane did not have any of that, and opted to insist on his rightful job.
