MEMBERS of the Economic Freedom Fighters wrapped trees in pink on the main road in the Tongaat CBD to commemorate community leaders who succumbed to cancer.

The campaign started on 16 October at the Tongaat CBD.

Former Minority Front councillor Praggie Padayachee said the intention was to commemorate those who succumbed to the disease.

“I lost my secretary on 6 October last year and we also lost DA councillor Brian Jayanathan. We took it upon ourselves to do something to commemorate residents and to show they are not forgotten,” he said.
