Councillor for Rasesa, Mr Daniel Molokwe, said DRCB had always been at the forefront of such activities in the Kgatleng District.
He indicated that he grew up in the DRCB where uplifting of people had been the church's mantra.
'DRCB is leading the way for other churches to follow,' he said, adding that it is not only council's responsibility to help the needy.
Seoke or Moruti Soaks as he was affectionately known was a historical figure and an icon of the DRCB who was blessed to live for 87 years.
Seoke participated in the programmes and events of the former Mochudi Circuit, which comprised of Mochudi, Sikwane and Moruleng and the Dutch Reformed Church in Africa Synod up to 1979 when DRCB gained autonomy.
