Life's hard for young mother of 4
FOR 24-year-old Kelebogile Molefe life on one of Rietvlei farms near Rustenburg has not been easy.
She has had to look after her four children and her younger brother since her parents died in 2000.
She is unemployed, and because she has to look after the children, she does not even have an ID.
Her children also do not have birth certificates.
Molefe says she only applied for the documents last month. They survive on the little money her boyfriend gives her. Besides that, Good Samaritans and churches sometimes give them food and money.
Molefe left school in Grade 9 at the age of 14 after her mother lost her job as a domestic worker on a nearby farm.
"After my mother lost her job, I dropped out because there was no money for the bus fare ," she says.
Molefe lives in a one-room house that her parents lived in when they worked for the previous farm owner.
