Celebrating the legacy of Madiba
The KwaDukuza Municipality hosted the Action Against Poverty Campaign to celebrate Mandela’s legacy. Together with various government departments, including Social Development, Sassa, and the Health Department, they hosted a Sukuma Sakhe Wednesday at Ntshawini as part of taking service delivery to the people.
A marathon of activities from KDM saw mayor Ricardo Mthembu and senior municipal management visit a child-headed household to donate school uniforms and inspect a newly built house in Thembeni.
Speaking at one of the venues, Mthembu said children should be looked after as they are the future of this country and that Nelson Mandela prioritised children during his lifetime.
“I would like to thank the management and staff of KDM for their commitment on this special day where we commemorate the champion of our democracy and also the continuing drive of showcasing that KDM is working for the people,” said Mthembu.
Sukuma Sakhe Wednesday ensured that the community is made aware of how certain departments work. Residents were also assisted in getting their new social grant cards as there have been issues in the province where beneficiaries were not getting their grants.
Other activities KDM hosted included blanket distribution, a house handover at Ward 11 and planting of fruit tress, among others.
