Charity begins at home for Kekana


SuperSport United defender Grant Kekana has continued with his food parcels donation initiative at his home town of Bela Bela today.

The 27-year-old who had the same initiative at Ga-Mamabolo two weeks ago was born at Soweto section in the Bela Bela area, Limpopo.

He was joined by teammates Ronwen Williams, Aubrey Modiba and Boalefa Pule as well as legend Edward ‘Magents’ Motale.

“This is where I was born and raised so I felt the need that I needed to come back to my home because I lived here for a long time and I know the struggles that they face here,” Kekana told FARPost.

“So I felt it was only right for me to also do something of this sort here in my home town and to today I think I was a bit emotional,” he admitted.

“It’s only a start hopefully I am just also thankful to Aubrey (Modiba), Eddie (Motale), Ronwen (Williams) and Boalefa Pule for coming and do this initiative with me here at home.

“Edward is a funny person and we enjoy his company but he is the one that always encourage us to keep on doing this and it shouldn’t just stop because we are now professional footballers and we have sort of made a name for ourselves. So he reiterates that we must remember where we come from because we all have our different struggles as he keeps us level headed all the time,” he added.

Through his Grant Kekana Foundation, the former junior international donated to over 100 families within the area.
