2017-03-10 06:02

CAMPAIGN Institute South Africa has plans in place to work with Umuziwabantu Municipality and representatives of SADC region to launch the music against violence and crime drive in Harding on March 21.

Chief Executive Officer from Campaign Institute South Africa, Ndumiso Vethe, said community members in Harding will be educated on ways to fight crime in order to make the area more appealing to tourists and visitors.

“Safety messages will be conveyed to community members by artists that are going to perform at the launch,” said Vethe.
The late gospel artist, S’fiso Ncwane, late Umuziwabantu councillor, Ace Houston, Mshiyeni Wilson Memela will be remembered at the event.

“Taxi bosses that were killed in the area are going to be remembered at the event. There is a high rate of domestic violence and crime incidents in wards 1, 2 and 3. The number of people that have been killed in the area has increased between June and February. Taxi owners were brutally killed last year and a woman was killed last week,” said Vethe.

Campaign Institute South Africa is also running auditions at municipalities for the formation of Ugu Regional Gospel Choir. The choir will then perform at the Annual Mandela Weekend Expo in Harding.
