Call to clean country and lead a healthy lifestyle
ETHEKWINI residents are encouraged to actively play a role in keeping their City and country clean, while leading a healthy and active lifestyle. EThekwini Mayor Zandile Gumede supported the call made by President Cyril Ramaphosa to clean every street corner in the country and to lead healthy lifestyles.

The clarion call was made by President Ramaphosa during a voter registration drive in Gauteng where he urged all eligible voters to register and verify their details ahead of the 2019 National Elections. Mayor Gumede, accompanied by former President Jacob Zuma, visited various areas of the City including Lindelani and Bridge City in KwaMashu to encourage residents to register to vote.

She said the call made by President Ramaphosa complemented Operation Khuculul’ iTheku also known as Operation Spring Clean eThekwini being run in the City. “We already have a programme championed by councillors at ward level to clean every street corner in the City.” Mayor Gumede said through this programme the City was also fighting crime. “In order to fight criminals we must clean and cut grass and ensure that our street lights are working,” she said, adding that the City’s Operation Khuculul’iTheku campaign will create a clean, safe and healthy environment while creating liveable spaces for residents through the enforcement of City by-laws.

Meanwhile, President Ramaphosa bemoaned the dirty streets in townships, calling on all South Africans to clean up their communities. He said government would be starting a national campaign to clean up township streets as it was important to live in a clean environment. He said when people lived in clean communities and led a healthy lifestyle it opened up their minds.
