Referee shows compassion 27/09/04
Top South African referee Andile 'Ace' Ncobo has become the knight in shining armour to a 60-year-old grandmother.

The headmaster has built a house for the Nobhungile Mafumbuka in Willovale.

The South African referee of the Year even used the money he received for his award to build the house, while he got friends to help him furnish the house.

"On my way to school I passed by this about-to-collapse rondavel every day," Ncobo told the Sunday Sun.

"One day I noticed a cooking pot on an outside fireplace and four children playing next to it. I was shocked to realise that this dark dilapidated rondavel was home to a 60-year-old and her four grandchildren."

"God works wonders. I don't know where my two sons are," said Mafumbuka, when she was handed the keys to the house.

"My only daughter, the mother of these children, is allegedly married somewhere. I can't get any grants for or the children because they need either my identity book or that of their mother."

Mafumbuka admitted that she can now sleep more peacefully knowing that if she passes away, at least her grandchildren will have a decent place to stay.

Ncobo has also organised food parcels Mafumbuka from the department of social welfare and also started proceedings for her grant application.
