Today on Mansfield in the Morning, Hot Cares spoke to Mxolisi Zulu. Affectionately known as Zulu, he works at Blanket Biz in Carlswald for Natalie Pope who nominated him for some help through Hot Cares.


A man with a heart for animals, Zulu has been living on the Pope property for over two years and in that time, she’s come to know Zulu as someone who’s always ready with a smile and joke, and share’s his compassionate nature with Natalie’s elderly Mum and ‘furkids’ with whom he shares the property.


More than that, Zulu is very active in his community doing animal outreach and caring for vulnerable animals in the township. He’s also a bit of a hero, having single-handedly thwarted and caught would be cable thieves and stood guard over them till security arrived.

May 2019 will see a Little Zulu or Zulu Princess born, as quite a blessed surprise; but in these tough times and in the small shack that Zulu shares with his wife, it’s not an ideal environment to raise his young, growing family.


Hot Cares will be purchasing Zulu a bigger Wendy House to ensure that him and his family have enough space to welcome their new baby home, as well as a Dischem voucher for the necessary baby products and supplies.
