For many years Ndala Myeni (39), Biza Village in Jozini, northern KZN, and her two kids, aged 12 and 19, lived in a structure that looks more like a kraal than somebody’s house.
An extremely grateful Ndala said: “I can’t remember how many times I’ve repaired our mud house.”
Part of it would crumble when there were heavy rains. She’d fix it herself because she didn’t have any money.
“I can’t believe I now own such a beautiful house,” she told Daily Sun reporters.

Ndala is employed as a cleaner, and earns R700 a month.
