Stories from Orange Farm

Orange Farm is a township 50km outside of Joburg. The advice office is run by Bricks Mokolo. Our junior journalist is Thokozile Mgcini. Each story first appeared on community radio station Thetha FM and was produced by community paralegals.

Why do I need a will? And how do I make one?

Head paralegal of the Orange Farm Human Rights Centre, Bricks Mokolo helps Thetha FM listeners to understand the importance of a will and how to write one.

It is not an easy subject to tackle but it a very important one that far too many people avoid. Read more on how to write your will
