ALL SMILES: Mavis(l) with Constance and the triplets

The single mum who appealed for help after recently giving birth to triplets has received help from a Good Samaritan.
Voice reader Mavis Koogotsitse was so moved by the story in her favourite newspaper, that she drove up from Gaborone to donate clothing and presents valued at over P1500.
Mavis who is the Southern Africa Trade Union Coordinating Council (SATUCC) gender coordinator, said: “I know what it is like to be a single mother, because I am also one. After reading about Constance Mlandu’s appeal and touching story, especially as she has no source income, I just had to help.”
The mother of one also offered to take care of Constance’s rental fees of P500 per month until further notice. On top of that, she promised to deposit P150 every month into the little toddlers’ accounts until the age of five.
Mavis said she was intending to lobby for additional support so that more money could be raised for the mother of the triplets. She added: “With the money Constance could probably start a small business which would assist her in raising the three toddlers, and not make her dependant on hand outs.”
She said it was her wish that the triplets should be raised as one family. “I think it would be distressing for Constance to have any of the kids adopted, because she was given the trio as a single package, so they should stay together.”
Mavis whose duties at SATUCC involve coordinating issues on women and employment in SADC, revealed that the P150 per month that is to go into the children’s account was a contribution from her daughter, who offered to cut part of her school allowance to assist.
When receiving the donations, a grateful Constance could not hold back her tears. She thanked Koogotsitse and her daughter for their generous donation and said God would bless them for having a heart for her and her unexpected little bundles of joy.
Apart from the donations, Mavis has promised to continue to visit Constance and her children to check on their progress.

  5. Helping others was something Jesus did on a daily basis. He was constantly approached by people, but He always found time to stop what He was doing to help those in need. This is a lesson we must learn if we want to be anything like Jesus, our savior. God bless you abundantly Vissie!!!!

  17. bathong mosadi yoo segofaditsweng ka bana ba bararo ke CONSTANCE eseng MAVIS jaaka bangwe ba akanya.Mavis ke yoo fileng bana dimpho.To Constance i wish ke kabe ke le wena sweety,o segofetse go menaganye.

  18. ssnana, being quite is also an option, especially if you gonna say such negative things.

    Did you at list ready the story? Not this one, the one Mavis read about this lady? my guess is NO! nx!

    Mavis may the man up stairs bless you, your family, and that of your new extended family.

  19. An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth, with biblical allusion to Exodus 21:24 is not the way to go Batswana. Our reaction to ssnana’s comment is not in anyway different from his own words. I do no condone self-righteousness. If ssnana should not insult let’s all not insult (ofcourse he was wrong in the name of poko)! Otherwise we are all coming to court with dirty hands. A re iponeng se se mo tlhogong! @ssnana did you attend Setswana lessons at school, I mean yr grammar and splitting of words? @ Ausi Connie you are blessed. @ Mavis you are a star. I am not a judge. Who the cap fits let them wear it, not my words, but Bob Marley’s. In conclusion, from what has been submitted so far, Batswana are a just and caring nation…. God bless you all (including ssnana, though yr name says it all).

  20. Owaiii, motho wa bo Penda weeee!! Searamo sa Modimo! Tswang mo go ene. Nna ke mo tlhobogile fela ke lemoga gore ga a itse le gore Mavis ke mang Constance ke mang. Se itshwantshanyeng le ene ka legano le le botlha. O tla a itharabologelwa nako nngwe and he will talk something se se nang le tlhaloganyo. Wena keep up the good work Mavis o seka wa tloga wa phenkulwa ke Saatane o Phenda a mo obamelang.

  21. That’s my friend there. I am so proud of you gal. Reading this piece touched my heart. This is the Mavis I know and she is raising her babygal to be giving and have a good heart. I am so proud of you dear and may God bless the cute little ones and their mom, and continue to bless Mavis and her daughter. Love u

  22. @ssnana:Tota o a bo o re gorileng yaanong wena?!That’s a very irresponsible comment and this definitely isn’t the space for it!!
    Mavis,may God richly bless you and your family.That’s an admirable act right there…

  23. ijaa batho ba bangwe ke mathata tlhe!!!!ke gore ha go buiwa dilo tse di serious bone ba ratha sekgwa motho wabo pendidipenda kana gatweng.mavis o dirile tiro entle thata wena le ngwana wa gago tswelela o tshware hela jalo motho wetsho modimo o go segohatse le bana bao le mmaabone constance.ke ka eletsa thata go nna le seabe mo thusong e kgolo e

  24. Thank you all for your kind words…My daughter & I feel more encouraged! We have had an overwhelming response from famiy & friends who are willing to help. We URGENTLY need an extra stroller/pram…we already have a double/twin one…I would actually prefer to get a TRIPLE STROLLER…ANYONE OUT THERE WILLING TO SHIP ONE OVER? Kagiso, u know the same one as the TRIO TRIPLE TANDEM or PEREGO TRIPLETTE tlhe tsalayame, we could share the both purchase and shipping costs…Again, go mariga, so ke kopa le re nthuse ka di pampers…otherwise everything is ok for now we are managing and the children are growing fast. As soon as we have opened accounts in their names we will let you know so that you may assist if you can. Kagiso, Bonny…all of you…we can do this…oh yes we can! MAY GOD BLESS Y’ALL!!!~xoxoxo~

  31. @Oopza, if you want to give something to the kids you may drive/fly to Francistown and contact Chenjelani Baraedi in Francistown – TheVoice office and their number is 2416621. They will take you to Constance’s place

    Alternatively if u want to send something you can buy, package it and drop it at TheVoice office in Gaborone, they have a vehicle that leaves on wednesdays to go deliver papers in Francistown and am pretty sure they will be more than willing to deliver the package to Constance.

  32. TLOTLO ,MAKAKGA KENG JAANONG? WA BO O SIMOLOTSE LE WENA.LO RATLA GO A KGELA MO DILONG TSA BATHO.A KGELANG MO SETLHOGONG BATHONG KE SO LE KWALA DILO TSE DI SA BALEGENG.MAKAKGA KE SEFANE SA GA GO.

  40. Mavis, that is brilliant sis! That’s what a compassionate society should be like! As for Constance, don’t do it again! Simple! Those are human beings you’ve brought into this world, you should be able to care for them! We can’t have this and expect to break the intergenerational poverty that plagues many of our people!
