CONTINUING with the clean-up and urban renewal programme, Msunduzi Municipality mayor Mzimkhulu Thebolla once again led councillors and officials in a two-day clean-up campaign.

On the first day of the campaign, Thebolla and officials focused on tiding up downtown areas and taxi ranks.

On the second day, Thebolla, deputy mayor Manilall Inderjit, speaker Eunice Majola- Zondi and chief whip Vusi Ntshangisa with municipal officials resumed the campaign on Burger Street.

During the campaigns, the mayor said: “Moving forward, we will continue to work together in ensuring cleanliness in our town and its surroundings.”

The municipality embarked on this programme last year, promising to deal with the “embarrassing” filth and to ensure that the City of Choice is no longer labelled a “City of filth”.

“The municipality is determined to ensure that the City of Choice is no longer labelled a City of filth; however, the contributions and support from the residents is critical to ensure a clean, safe and vibrant city for all to live, learn, raise a family, work, play and do business,” said Thebolla.

Commenting on the clean-up, Gillian Jarvis Tredgold said: “I refuse to get excited about this.

It’s like applauding teachers for managing to get to school to teach or congratulating nurses for pitching up at the hospital to care for patients. It’s called a job. If they had done it properly to start with, there’d be no need for a clean-up campaign, it could have been just another day at the office, you know, cleaning up yesterday’s rubbish - not a year’s worth. Fewer photo shoots, more do-your-job.”

Resident, Vezi Mdlalose also suggested that the municipality should make more bins available for the public to use especially on Church Street and Long Market, and the municipality responded by saying there are bins, although they are not enough and also stated that they are in the process of getting more bins.
