EThekwini Mayor to Lead Thousands Walking Against Social Ills
 
Following socials ravaging numerous communities within the city, Her Worship the Mayor of eThekwini Cllr Zandile Gumede is declaring war to all forms of social ills. Gumede will be among thousands that will be walking against this scourge from Durban City Hall to Victoria Park, North Beach on 08 February 2019. The walk dubbed “Opportunities Walk” is hoped to make a huge dent on this menace that has become synonymous with our communities.
 
The main purpose of this annual campaign is to focus on substance abuse, teenage pregnancy and the spread of HIV and AIDS and the malicious damage it is causing to our youth which hinders progress and economic growth in the Municipality and country as a whole.
 
Social ills also destabilise the communities in which these youth live affecting quality of life which also impacts on teaching and learning within schools. They also erode gains made by government programmes in improving the wellbeing of citizens.
 
The media is invited to cover this event to be held as follows:
 
DATE: Friday, 08/02/2019
TIME: 10H00
VENUE: Victoria Park, North Beach opposite Shoprite
