Dukathole residents clean up their community

“As a community, we need to pride ourselves in what we do and where we live,” said Ntuthuzelo.

Residents of the Dukathole informal settlement held a clean-up campaign on July 17.
According to Gauteng Youth Crime Prevention Desk chairperson Ntuthuzelo Mpambani, the settlement has not been cleaned for almost a month.
“Rubbish was piling up everywhere and that posed a threat to the residents’ health and we needed to address that,” said Ntuthuzelo.
He said they don’t know the reasons the rubbish has not been collected but as residents, they take responsibility for their area and decided to clean up their neighbourhood.
“We understand how difficult it is for the metro to keep every street and part of the city clean.
“As a community, we need to pride ourselves in what we do and where we live,” said Ntuthuzelo
