The civil rights organisation AfriForum on 27 July 2018 held a clean-up action in Kloofsig, Centurion during which a pedestrian walkway was cleaned up. This walkway leads to a pedestrian bridge that crosses Solomon Mahlangu Drive.
Community members notified AfriForum that this pedestrian walkway was not only overgrown with weeds and bushes but was also covered with garbage. It subsequently presented a safety risk to members of the public that made use of this route. AfriForum appointed Amandri Garden Services to undertake the clean-up operation during this action.
“We are thankful to the community that informs us of these types of problems and then enables us to try and find solutions for it,” says Lambert de Klerk, AfriForum’s District Coordinator for Gauteng North.
De Klerk adds that AfriForum is planning on tackling more similar projects in Centurion and is making a plea to the community to inform the organisation regarding deficiencies or problems that need to be tackled.
“Furthermore, we also want to attempt in the near future to establish a branch in Centurion Central,” concludes De Klerk.
AfriForum is making a plea to the various communities in the Tshwane Metro to become involved in their nearest AfriForum branches and to actively participate in the organisation’s activities. For more information about this, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
