City regains pride
For the more than two weeks in which the Matjhaben

For the more than two weeks in which the Matjhabeng municipal workers were on strike, no basic service delivery of any nature was provided to the residents and business.

This included refuse removal from the suburbs (in all six units) and the Central Business District (CBD). No parks, streets or thoroughfares were cleaned during this time.

No basic maintenance or services were provided to the residents of Matjhabeng, and the numerous protest actions left piles of refuse, broken lumps of cement, burnt tyres and bricks everywhere in the CBD and surrounds.

On Sunday (02/12) the Welkom community came together and cleaned the streets of the beleaguered city.

Approximately 80 volunteers, comprising service organisations, schools, business and residents took part in the campaign.

“It was a blessed afternoon to see Welkom’s community get together to make a difference where it was needed. It was a great success.

“Welkomites woke up to a cleaner city on Monday morning,” says Emmanuel Archontakis, organiser and convenor of the event.

He says the response from the community on social media and WhatsApp was overwhelming and similar projects will be launched in the new year.

“Thank you to all who gave of themselves willingly. And thank you to the businesses who made trucks, staff, diesel and people available for the clean-up,” he says.
