NHWs praise unsung heroes

Tygerdal and Glenwood neighbourhood watches have dubbed the teams of the Displacement People Unit (DPU), law enforcement, Prasa, waste management, and those who assist with donations, as heroes.

Spokesperson Lynda Smith said while they can moan about the “disgusting mess” they clean up, they realised that like politics, they are allowing the negative to overshadow the positive.

“The men and women of DPU, led by the ever amazing Wayne Aldridge, are working tirelessly with the neighbourhood watches and the communities, yet they get ambushed by some. Instead of criticising and lambasting this amazing unit it really needs to be said that we see their hard work and the way they are trying to sort out the vagrant issue and we are in awe.

“Then we have the law enforcement officers who enforce the bylaws and vagrancy issue as a huge part of their mandate. There are so many laws, policies and instructions that these people are walking a tight rope every day while they try and execute their duties. Yet they are ever helpful and diligent when they join us on these cleanup operations. With the DPU they are following a strict plan to eventually get to our ultimate goal – a definite and working solution to the vagrant issue.”

Smith added that the waste management team are the unsung heroes who have to clean up after vagrants. “It’s them who have to pick up the clothes used as toilet paper and rotting food.

“With Prasa, we are finally able to clear up the mess vagrants cause all along the railway line. This new partnership has proven to be invaluable to everybody in getting to a clean and safer neighbourhood. Then there’s Chris Faure from Engen Garage who every single second Saturday donates 20 coffees out of his pocket to give that extra boost to all involved. We want to say thank you to all who help.”

Others who have been applauded for their efforts include SkipGo, N1 City’s security and Riana de Wet from Monte Vista Ratepayers Association.
