MEC urges selfless sacrifice on Mandela Day in Pietermaritzburg and Durban

KZN MEC for Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs (Cogta) Nomusa Dube-Ncube has today, on the Mandela Day, joined KZN Premier Willies Mchunu and eThekwini Mayor Cllr Zandile Gumede in various 67 Minutes for Madiba activities in Pietermaritzburg and Durban, respectively.

The MEC’s programme started at Manaye Hall in Imbali where progress with the implementation of the Manaye and Mandela Capture Site projects was presented to the media. Both initiatives are signature projects of KZN Cogta and a way to capitalise on Madiba’s link with the province for marketing purposes.

Dube-Ncube’s programme then moved to Durban where a CBD clean-up took place in various areas alongside Margaret Mncadi Avenue. The activities also included painting of derelict buildings as part of Durban’s wider urban rejuvenation programme which seeks to draw businesses back to the CBD.

“We would like to thank all community members for donating their time on this Mandela centenary day for the benefit of their fellow citizens and for the greater good of society. This is the true spirit of Madiba’s selfless sacrifice – doing things for others without expecting anything in return,” said Dube-Ncube.
