Soweto a community stronger together! Ubuntu is alive and well, our community saves Maponya Mall

An address by Chichi Maponya recognizes the effects of the “devastating shock” and damages to our communities from the Civil unrest and sends a message of appreciation on behalf of the Maponya Mall Family. For the full video click here.

Maponya Mall thanks everyone who played their part in protecting our mall during this time of crisis. We recognize those heroes and many more who go unnamed but are a part of our community. We have a lot of people to thank for their generosity in donating food, blankets, and parcels, and time to patrolling the mall’s exterior.

Pick n Pay, Dischem, Maponya Optometrist, Tape, Clairz, Diamond Sandrand Cell, 110 General Traders, Segwapa, Pie City, Spur, Best Mobile, Wimpy, Timberland, Homechoice, Africafe, Freedom Technology, Black Edge, Perfect Fit Glass, Jonissa Electrical, Complete Herbal and Torga Optical. We’d also like to thank the SAPS, SANDF, Soweto Parliament, JMPD, Soweto Taxi Association, and Nancefield Hostel, and of course, the residents of Soweto!

The mall returned to operations on Tuesday the 20th July unharmed thanks to the efforts of the community, management, tenants, and officials alike.
