The Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs MEC, Sihle Zikalala led a clean-up campaign in the Msunduzi Local Municipality as part of the Masakhane Campaign on Thursday 24 November in the Edendale Township.
The campaign saw the political leadership of the UMgungundlovu and Msunduzi Municipality join the MEC in this exercise that was meant to highlight to communities the importance of keeping surroundings clean.
Speaking about the clean-up campaign, MEC Zikalala hailed the efforts being made by the Msunduzi Municipality to keep the city clean and to combat social ills. “Our clean-up campaign today, is a call for our councillors to play a leading role in encouraging communities to fight illegal dumping which causes serious health hazards and damages the environment and compromises the appeal of our municipalities,” said Zikalala.
Through the Masakhane Campaign, the MEC will visit municipalities to support their revenue enhancement and service delivery programmes.
