In the absence of the normal workers, the Mlungus and a few African employees pitch in and offload the grain feed for the cattle
Continuing with my post two days ago about the chaos and destruction in and around our hometown in South Africa, I want to thank you all for your kind thoughts and prayers at this time. Apparently the area is in a state of limbo; most of the businesses in town are closed as people are not able leave their homes in the nearby township, Moemaneng to come to work. The elderly and infirm in town have been advised to stay in their homes or their apartments within the retirement center in town.
However, a business outside town, a large feedlot company has had to continue with or without workers. The mlungus* and a few trusty Africans who managed to escape intimidation, literally pitched in (no pun intended) and offloaded feed for the cattle and ultimately tended to the thousands of head of cattle on the ranch.
You can read about this company, Sparta Beef, here (Do go into the links provided to see how much Sparta does for the entire community of Marquard and Moemaneng)
I hope you're all having a great weekend.
Note: *mlungu is the Sesotho/Zulu name for anyone not of African origin, albeit Asian, European or Middle-Eastern. In East Africa we foreigners are the mzungu. (both words pronounced with OO sounds - mloongoo and mzoongoo)
