City Beachfront Beautified

​While most of us visit Durban’s Beachfront for a leisurely stroll or a satisfying swim, the Clean My City team focused on that area, doing clean-ups, repair and maintenance, as part of the long term beautification of the City.

With the programme’s major launch last week, the team are gearing up towards achieving the City’s vision of being the most caring and liveable city by 2030.

At the beachfront, staff told Metro eZasegagasini why they choose to do the work that they do and what makes them tick. “While we are all looking for an income to bring home the bread, this job is fulfilling because I feel that I am making a difference. Tourists often visit our beachfront and I feel privileged that I am one of those people that beautifies the City,” said Prince Mngadi, a DSW Street Sweeper.

Mngadi said that he has heard through the “grapevine” that Singapore is a very clean and well maintained place and we should learn from their example. Further down the road there were Parks Recreation and Culture staff that were watering plants, litter picking, and removing debris.

Selvan Naidoo, Parks Supervisor for District 10 said, “We need to be constantly productive in the work that we do so that we render the best possible service to the community.” The launch of Clean My
City will happen today with a major clean-up operation led by the Mayor, Councillor James Nxumalo. It will take place in the Umlazi C-Section area. Clean My City is also a call to action campaign that encourages everyone to be responsible for the city that they live in, and clean up their surroundings.
