A R120 chunk of the R350 Nomangesi Ndwayana and Nandile Ngemntu will each receive from the Covid-19 Social Relief of Distress grant will go to pay the driver who brought them 50 kilometres from Peddie to Makhanda in Eastern Cape to queue outside the Post Office.
The pair arrived at 3am, only to find people already queueing.
“We do have a Post Office in Peddie town,” said Ndwayana. “But the challenge is that all the people from the rural villages (118 villages according to the Ngqushwa Municipality website) here are served by one Post Office. You can just imagine all those villages coming together to a single Post Office. That is the reason we decided to come to Grahamstown (Makhanda) because they have a few post offices here to assist people.”
