Makhura, who was joined by human settlements MEC Paul Mashatile, helped to build a house in the area situated near the Golden Highway.

Makhura was dressed in green overalls and a helmet as he poured cement on the walls of the house under construction.

Mandela Day is celebrated globally, where everyone is encouraged to do something to improve the lives of the less fortunate.
