Ekurhuleni invests R214-m into new service vehicles

Ekurhuleni will on Wednesday, August 7, reveal 270 of the 610 new service vehicles recently purchased by the metro.

The vehicles include 48 ambulances, nine fire trucks, two mobile clinics, 57 refuse removal trucks, 18 water tankers and 129 metro police vehicles.

Ekurhuleni metro spokesperson, Sam Modiba, says that this is a major investment for Ekurhuleni.

“This in a bid to improve critical services such as emergency services, law enforcement, healthcare and waste management,” says Modiba.

During a recent monthly council meeting, Ekurhuleni mayor, Mondli Gungubele, said that the vehicles were purchased so that they may enhance the city’s existing service delivery programme, and equip staff with the necessary tools to carry out their mandate.

“It is our belief that the community must be taken on board to see how some of the money paid for rates and taxes are being spent in an endeavour to better their lives.

“As the city of Ekurhuleni, we believe that the people of Ekurhuleni need a proactive, organic and activist municipality, and that is what we are prepared to give them at all costs,” said Gungubele.
