Reclaiming Open Spaces Through Massive Clean-UP Campaign
In an effort to reclaim public spaces the Municipality, in partnership with the youth of KwaMashu, have started a clean-up and renovation campaign aimed at restoring neglected open spaces in their community. These spaces will be converted into safe public facilities for the benefit of the local communities.
The campaign, initiated by the local youth of KwaMashu, Imbumba Yembokodo, seeks to identify areas which over the years have been neglected and turned into illegal dumping sites. With assistance from the Municipality, the sites will be cleaned up and converted into safe, clean and green facilities that can be used for recreational purposes.
The first clean-up will take place at an illegal dumping site on Zulu Road in KwaMashu E-Section. After the clean-up, trees and flowers will be planted at the site. It will also be fitted with benches and other equipment to allow members of the community to enjoy the use of the open space.
The clean-up will be led by Ward 46 Councillor, Bongani Dlamini. Members of the media are invited to be part of the historic initiative.
