  • City of Tshwane to commemorate Earth Hour

    City of Tshwane to commemorate Earth Hour

    Thu, Mar 23, 2017

    On 25 March 2017, the City of Tshwane will join millions around the world to celebrate Earth Hour 2017. 

    The City has participated in Earth Hour activities since 2009 by switching off lights on the last Saturday of March from 20:30 to 21:30 in all municipal buildings, and encouraging others within the city to do so. 

    This year the City is co-organising and participating in three events which align with the three areas of mitigation (mitigating carbon emissions), waste, green buildings and low carbon mobility, as follows: 

    Atteridgeville Recycling Park Open Day on 25 March 2017

    The purpose of the event is to invite selected stakeholder groups to participate in an open day at the Atteridgeville Recycling Park. The open day aims to raise awareness of plant activities and debunk any concerns held by community members, especially in relation to composting. The open day also aims to build skills in vegetable gardening and the role of composting therein, and to develop an understanding of entrepreneurial opportunities associated with composting.

    Menlyn Maine Switch Off on 25 March 2017 

    This year, the City of Tshwane will host an event at Menlyn Maine, a venue that resonates with the theme of renewable energy as it is a green building that is designed to use minimal energy. The aim of the evening is to emphasise the importance of green developments as it helps the City to conserve scarce resources.

    Hammanskraal Green Ride on 26 March 2017

    The Tshwane Green Ride is a hallmark of the sustainable mobility programme where we cast a light on the importance of cycling as a viable mode of transport. This will be the fourth ride organised since 2014 and will take place for the first time in Hammanskraal. The aim is to rotate the Green Ride in the various townships as a green communities outreach activity and to draw attention to the role of supporting infrastructure to enable cyclists to pedal safely. 

    The theme for this year's Earth Hour is "Say YES to renewable energy" 

    The City of Tshwane is in the process of developing guidelines on small scale embedded generation (SSEG), which will encourage the proliferation of solar energy to power homes and commercial buildings in the city. The SSEG guidelines will also encourage the development of feed-in-tariffs aligned to the National Electricity Regulator of South Africa (NERSA). The City has also installed two solar-powered electric vehicle charging stations to encourage the use of renewable energy by its electric vehicle fleet.

  • New emergency fleet unveiled

    New emergency fleet unveiled

    Fri, Mar 17, 2017

    "The state of emergency services across the city should be fully capacitated and demonstrate that we are a capital city of the one of the biggest economies on the African continent." Those were the words of the Executive Mayor of Tshwane, Cllr Solly Msimanga, when handing over new emergency vehicles on 16 March 2017 to the Heuweloord Fire Station. 

    The new emergency vehicles form part of a commitment made by the Executive Mayor to improve law enforcement by assessing the fitness of law enforcement and emergency personnel on a regular basis to ensure that they are well prepared to enforce and protect residents, as well as save their lives. 

    In capacitating the emergency services fleet, the City purchased 18 rapid intervention vehicles, 33 ambulances and 1 maxilance. The new fleet will assist the city in responding to incidents quicker than before. 

    "When there is an emergency, be it medical or fire-related, our people's most basic concern is whether the help will show up when needed, in time to save their lives," said Msimanga. 

    Msimanga also said that a similar fire station will be opened in Mamelodi in 2018, and thereafter one every two years in different locations. 

    The unveiling event also showcased the human spirit as Msimanga recognised the dedicated men and women in uniform who have served the department and the City for many years, ranging from 30 to 40 years. 

    The Heuweloord Fire Station will not only serve the communities of Heuweloord, Olievenhoutbosch, Laezonia, Sunderland Ridge, Mooiplaats, Laudium, Claudius, Erasmia and Wierdapark, but will also respond to motor vehicle accidents on the R55 and the N14 Pretoria/Krugersdorp highway, embodying to the golden hour concept.

  • An inclusive and clean city will be the way to create opportunities for the people

    An inclusive and clean city will be the way to create opportunities for the people

    Fri, Mar 17, 2017

    ​The Executive Mayor of Tshwane, Solly Msimanga, briefed members of the media on Wednesday, 15 March on the City's progress with the establishment of the Informal Trading Board and Anti-Drug Unit. 

    In doing so the Executive Mayor detailed plans to harness small businesses to align them to inner city rejuvenation and procedures to curtail drugs and illicit behaviour in Tshwane. Cllr Msimanga said that the City of Tshwane has decided to host a summit for the informal traders to further hear some of their grievances but, most importantly, how the City can further assist them to make a living and flourish within the ambit of the law. 

    The summit is aimed at developing a more detailed understanding of the informal economy and its needs. It is also an opportunity to convey to informal traders that the Inner City Rejuvenation Programme is not designed to stifle their work. Rather, it is meant to create an environment that invites residents and tourists alike into the city, which will dramatically increase the influx of people into the city and increase the market to which informal traders can sell. 

    The rapid globalisation of the drug trade over the past decade has virtually ensured that no country is immune to the threat of drug abuse and drug crime. Therefore, South Africa has become a transit route for the drug trade and a major consumer of drugs.

    The drug trade, drug abuse and all associated crime are an issue that the City has been seized with. This is evidenced by the Anti-Drug Unit that was established last year after Msimanga assumed office. This unit has had some success and is continuously intensifying its efforts to get drugs off the streets in Tshwane, including the CBD. 

    Furthermore, the City has partnered with the University of Pretoria to fight against drug and substance abuse. The most important aspect of this project is that it has initiated a significant shift in the approach to dealing with substance abuse. This is seen in the shift from victimisation of drug users, which was often characterised by sending the users either to jail or to short rehabilitation in rehabilitation centres where withdrawal and total abstinence are the sole aim, to a human rights, harm reduction and health care approach where early detection, harm reduction and care in the community through relationship building, support and re-integration into society are the main focus.

    "No community will be a no-go area for service delivery. We believe that we can bring about the conditions that will draw investment, stimulate economic activity and create job opportunities. We believe that local government is ideally placed to drive economic development and support the ambitions of enterprising South Africans," said Msimanga in closing.

  • TB Awareness Month 2017

    TB Awareness Month 2017

    Tue, Mar 7, 2017

    Did you know that, every year, tuberculosis (TB) causes thousands of deaths in South Africa and the rest of the world? The death toll also rises worldwide every year.  

    TB Awareness Month is commemorated each year from 1 to 31 March. This year's theme is "Unite to end TB and HIV: South African leaders taking action''. The City of Tshwane's Health Department aims to promote this awareness through community engagement which mainly focuses on –

    1. TB testing and screening to identify TB;
    2. enhancing the detection of TB in children;
    3. improving HIV counselling and testing; and
    4. promoting healthy lifestyles. 

     

    We urge citizens not to wait for all the symptoms to appear before they report to the clinic. TB is curable when treatment is taken as prescribed by the clinic. The hard-to-treat TB called MDR TB (multidrug-resistant TB) or XDR TB (extreme drug-resistant TB) may develop when one stops or skips treatment. More expensive treatment will then be needed for a very long time. 

    The following factors contribute to the prevalence of TB disease:

    1. Alcoholism
    2. Smoking
    3. Diseases such as diabetes
    4. Cancer treatment
    5. Continuous tiredness
    6. Overcrowding
    7. Poor nutrition
    8. Physical and emotional problems
    9. Vulnerability due to being very young or elderly
    10. Viral infections that cause low resistance 

     

    Anybody experiencing any of the following needs to contact their clinic for free TB screening:

    1. Persistent cough
    2. Unintentional weight loss
    3. Tiredness and weakness
    4. Night sweats
    5. Chest pains
    6. Blood in the sputum  

     

    Factors leading to an increase in TB cases: 

    1. Clients give wrong addresses and telephone numbers, so follow-up is difficult or impossible.
    2. There is a social stigma associated with TB.
    3. There is a lack of support from family or relatives.
    4. Patients refuse to take treatment and continue to spread TB.

     

    If you have TB, it does not mean that you are HIV-positive. Get tested for HIV! TB is fully curable even if you are HIV-positive. Let us fight TB together and have a healthy community. If somebody at home has TB, take all your children under the age of five to the clinic for free screening and testing for TB.

  • Three birdies clinched the win for Tshwane Open 2017

    Three birdies clinched the win for Tshwane Open 2017

    Mon, Mar 6, 2017

    It was a victory that was a long time coming, and when it did, Dean Burmester struggled to put into words what it meant to claim his maiden European Tour title by three strokes in the Tshwane Open on Sunday. 

    "Now I'm a European Tour winner. That sounds good," was what he could get out first. "This is massive. I can't explain where I am right now." 

    Where he is, is at the winning end of a run of three top 10s, a share of 11th in four of his five tournaments this year, top-five finishes in the Tshwane Open the previous two years, and a general banging on this door for the past few seasons. 

    "I'm elated," he said after a dominant final-round performance that saw him win on 18 under par with a closing 65 at the Pretoria Country Club. 

    Spain's Jorge Campillo and Finland's Mikko Korhonen shared second on 15 under. 

    Burmester's victory was built on a fast start of three birdies in his opening three holes, which did a lot to calm the nerves of a golfer who has been pushing hard for a victory as big as this. 

    "I had put a lot of added pressure on myself and frustration to win. Now I'm just looking forward to a full season on the European Tour." 

    A front nine of 29 – his first on the circuit – and then a birdie on 10 took him six shots clear of the field. 

    But Burmester was well aware of some tricky holes on the back nine, and was the first to admit that he made things somewhat difficult for himself with three bogeys there. 

    "I know what this golf course can do. It showed me on 16 and 17 with the bogeys there, and I made it a bit harder. But I did the job on 18, so I'm really excited."

    It was a victory made all the more rewarding by having his whole family there to witness it. 

    "It's surreal. I'm just really, really chuffed. My grandfather recently passed away so this one was for him."

    Message from the new City Manager: Moeketsi Mosola

    Fri, Mar 3, 2017

    Working together we will make Tshwane a proud home for our citizens and the pride of our nation. 

    I would like to thank everyone in the City of Tshwane for the warm welcome I have received this week when I joined you as a team member and leader of the administration.  

    A special thanks to the Executive Mayor, Councillor Solly Msimanga, Mayoral Committee, Council and our citizens for affording me the opportunity to serve them and our nation. 

    I also take this opportunity to thank top management and the entire City of Tshwane workforce (the team) for continuing to manage what has been a challenging transition since August last year. I thank you for the professionalism that you have demonstrated so far. It is this professionalism that makes me proud to be your leader. 

    Our city is very special because it is the seat of the executive that governs our country. It is here in our city where the inauguration of the President takes place every five years. Our city is a home to more than 134 embassies, representing the friendship that our country has with other nations of the world. In simple terms, our city is very important. Our city carries the wishes and hopes of our country. Our city is not only a home to our citizens, but it is also a pride of our nation. 

    It is this importance that places a huge responsibility on our political leaders and on us as professional public servants. As professional public servants of Tshwane we will strive to serve our citizens with respect, honesty and integrity. We will treat our elected leaders with respect and professionalism at all times. We will form partnerships with all our stakeholders in the city because we know and understand that changing Tshwane is not only our responsibility but everyone's business. 

    As a team we face major challenges moving forward – financial, service delivery, organisational as well as some professional challenges. However, I am confident that with the energy I have witnessed from the Executive Mayor and top management this week, we will change the City of Tshwane for good. 

    As a team member I am looking forward to listening to you, learning from you and finding solutions to our challenges working together. Working together we will make Tshwane a proud home for our citizens and the pride of our nation.

  • Tshwane Open 2017 officially teed off

    Tshwane Open 2017 officially teed off

    Thu, Mar 2, 2017

    In its fifth year, the Tshwane Open Tour promises to be bigger and better than ever.

    The R16,5 million tournament officially teed off at the Pretoria Country Club this morning, 2 March 2017.

    After hitting the first tee shot, the Executive Mayor, Cllr Solly Msimanga, thanked all the sponsors and investors who made the tournament possible. "Your investment in this tournament means that funds are freed up to improve basic service delivery in the city," said Msimanga. 

    "By investing in the Tshwane Open Tournament, you have in effect greatly contributed to the development of our city and our civic responsibility to provide much-needed services to our people," added Msimanga.

    For the first time, the tournament includes the three junior golfers Neil Retief, Jesse Venter and Joshua Koekemoer, who earned a place in the pro-am after they won their respective divisions at the Tshwane Open Junior Tournament on 26 February.

    The 2017 Tshwane Open has a strong field, including newly crowned Joburg Open winner, Darren Fichardt, and former champion George Coetzee, as well as 2016 European Ryder Cup captain, Darren Clarke, former Masters champion, Trevor Immelman, Italian star Edoardo Molinari, the Indian great Jeev Milkha Singh and the reigning South African Open champion, Graeme Storm.

  • Road safety is a shared responsibility.

    Road safety is a shared responsibility.

    Tue, Feb 28, 2017

    Road safety in Tshwane is of great concern for the Municipality. The developing trend of unsafe road use by pedestrians and motorists alike requires public safety initiatives and interventions.  

    The MMC for Roads and Transport, Cllr Sheila Lynne, announced a year-long road safety campaign – TshwAlert – that will, amongst others, comprise an education drive, strict law enforcement, the maintenance of roads, traffic signs and markings, and the implementation of traffic-calming measures. 

    Residents can report traffic signal faults at trafficsignalfaults@tshwane.gov.za.

    Potholes can be reported at pothole@tshwane.gov.za

    Don't speed.

    Don't text and drive.

    Don't drink and drive.

    Don't overtake when it is unsafe.

    Keep your following distance.

    Arrive alive!

  • Tshwane Open Pro-AM tees-off.

    Tshwane Open Pro-AM tees-off.

    Tue, Feb 28, 2017

    The Chief Whip of the City of Tshwane Council, Cllr Christo van den Heever opened the Tshwane Open Pro-AM in style with an amazing tee shot at the Pretoria Country Club.

    The Tshwane Open Pro-AM is paving way for a great week of golf in the capital city. The 2017 Tshwane Open Tournament will take place from 2 March to 5 March 2017.

    The Pro-AM has some incredibly talented players participating, including local champion and previous winner George Coetzee.

  • Neil Retief crowned Tshwane Open Junior Tournament winner

    Neil Retief crowned Tshwane Open Junior Tournament winner

    Mon, Feb 27, 2017

    Local youngster, Neil Retief, the overall winner of the inaugural Tshwane Open Junior Tournament, will be up against a professional golfer at the Pretoria Country Club on Saturday, 4 March. 

    As part of his prize for winning the junior tournament, Retief will take part in the Audi Beat the Pro challenge, taking on one of the professionals at the 14th hole of the Tshwane Open. 

    Retief and the winner of the B Division, Jesse Venter, and winner of the Under 13s, Joshua Koekemoer, also get the opportunity to play in the 2017 Tshwane Open Pro Am on Tuesday, 28 February. 

    More than 90 youngsters between the ages of 10 and 18 battled it out on the fairways of the Irene Country Club on Sunday, 26 February. This new event on the Tshwane sporting calendar is sponsored by Jaguar Centurion. 

    Speaking at the tournament's prize-giving, the Mayoral Committee Member for Sport, Recreation, Arts and Culture, Councillor Ntsiki Mokhotho, said that the City wanted to see golf thrive, "We want to see our young golfers hold their own with the best in the world." 

    She added, "Our partnership with the South African Golf Development Board and Gauteng North Golf Union today plays an important part in supporting golf development in this region. Through this partnership, all our young golfers – including those from disadvantaged backgrounds – get the opportunity to take part in a sport traditionally regarded as the preserve of the wealthy." 

    This is the first year that the Tshwane Open and the City of Tshwane have played host to a junior tournament. In previous years, the Tshwane Open hosted developmental clinics at the Mabopane Golf Range with the aim of introducing golf to children in previously disadvantaged communities. 

    However, the change in approach is seen as more sustainable, capturing youngsters who are already interested in golf. The junior golf development programme is a feeder system into the mainstream, professional golf sector. In fact, the 2015 Tshwane Open champion, George Coetzee, came out of the South African golf development process. 

    "We look forward to the day one of our local youngsters becomes a South African golfing champion. Who knows, today you may just have seen the next Charl Schwartzel or George Coetzee – our past two Tshwane Open winners – out on the course today," MMC Mokhotho concluded.

  • Summit addressing the city’s economic growth and unemployment

    Summit addressing the city’s economic growth and unemployment

    Thu, Feb 23, 2017

    A two-day Mayoral Economic Summit is taking place at the CSIR where the City of Tshwane and critical stakeholders from the government, private sector, academia, labour and civil society will develop a joint action plan to address the Tshwane's economic growth and development. 

    Topics of discussion will be centred around:

    1. The interlinkages between space and the economy;
    2. Core growth enablers, such as the provision of sustainable economic infrastructure, including the innovative financing thereof;
    3. The growth potential of innovative city-level governance solutions within the South African context;
    4. Tshwane's comparative advantage from a sector prioritisation perspective;
    5. Partnerships required for growth; and
    6. Social cohesion and growth.

     

    Addressing delegates, the Executive Mayor, Councillor Solly Msimanga, said the revitalisation of Tshwane's economy is vital for generating more revenue to create much-needed employment opportunities for the millions of people who so desperately need to be employed in order for them to liberate themselves from the throes of poverty.

    Important for this to happen, he said, is the need to ensure that the basic infrastructure to support economic growth is in place. "This means a dependable supply of electricity, a well-maintained road infrastructure and the roll-out of efficient ICT infrastructure across the city."

    The Executive Mayor identified specific projects to address the inner city decay in Tshwane's central business district and Centurion. Among these are a policy of stringent by-law enforcement and traffic control to help the metro police make inner city spaces safe. Social workers will also be deployed in communities to prevent young people from resorting to a life of crime. Specific interventions, such as the Metro Police Cadet Programme and the Safe Schools Project, will be implemented to promote responsible citizenship.

    Various development projects will be undertaken, such as the development of an advanced manufacturing sector in partnership with private investors to leverage off the city's research and development capability, accelerating the inner city regeneration project aimed at redefining the look and feel of the African capital of excellence and supporting the automotive and aerospace industries to expedite their respective expansion programmes.  

    In addition, a number of multibillion-rand mixed-use developments are also underway in the city. These include the Hazeldean development, the Menlyn Main development, which is set to become Africa's first green city, and the African Gateway, which will include the Tshwane International Convention Centre. 

  • Tshwane Open 2017 on track

    Tshwane Open 2017 on track

    Tue, Feb 21, 2017

    It's all systems go for the Tshwane Open 2017. The City is ready to host this prestigious sporting event and other activities planned for next week.

    Speaking at the media briefing on 21 February 2017, the Executive Mayor of Tshwane, Cllr Solly Msimanga encouraged investors to invest in the 2017 Tshwane Open golf tournament, which has potential to make Tshwane a premier sporting destination. 

    "To this end, it is my intention to invest in the Tshwane Open tournament by means of private-public partnership so as to alleviate the pressure on the City of Tshwane and free up much needed resources to provide services to our people" said Msimanga  

    Msimanga said he cannot in good conscience spend millions of public funds on Tshwane Open when the city is in need of total rehabilitation to make it great again.

    As such, we humbly encourage and invite you to invest in this tournament and in so doing give effect to our collective responsibility to develop our city, added Msimanga. 

    Msimanga assured investors that by investing in the Tshwane Open Tournament, they will in effect be greatly contributing to the development of our city and our civic responsibility to provide much-needed services to our people. 

    "Your investment in this tournament means that funds are freed to replace our ageing water infrastructure, which means that residents living in places like Ga-Rankuwa can resume a life of dignity with the most basic of services" concluded Msimanga 

    The Tshwane Open 2017 have some incredibly talented players lined up for this year's tournament, including our local champion and previous winner George Coetzee.  

    The tournament is making a name for itself both here at home and internationally. The Tshwane Open forms part of the 2017 Sunshine Tour and is co-sanctioned by the European Tour. It is one of the tournaments that give players the chance to gain Sunshine Tour Order of Merit points, European Race to Dubai points and sought-after world-ranking points. 

    And during the event, Tshwane – as the host city – gains an international reputation through the four-day live television coverage via SuperSport. What this means in reality is that the television feed is distributed to 41 broadcasters in 150 countries and has the potential to reach more than 400 million households. Last year the television coverage achieved more than $68 million in media coverage or just over R916 million. 

    This event would not be possible without the magnificent support from our sponsors:

    1. Sunshine Tour
    2. European Tour
    3. Race to Dubai
    4. Audi
    5. TicketPro
    6. The Pro Shop
    7. ABI
    8. Gauteng Provincial Government

    15. Brand SA
    16. ABSA
    17. Old Mutual
    18. Our media partners Power FM and Jacaranda FM
    19. And our venue, the Pretoria Country Club. You have to admit that the beautiful venue does the city proud. 

    Other Tshwane Open Facets Include: 

    LADIES TSHWANE OPEN 

    The 2017 Tshwane Open season kicked off in fine style with the Ladies Tshwane Open, held at the Zwartkop Country Club from 31 January to 2 February. This year England's Kiran Matharu took the title.  

    The tournament boasted a purse of R400 000, thanks to the City of Tshwane, the business community of Tshwane and various sponsors from the private sector. 

    In keeping with the City of Tshwane's drive to support women empowerment, this tournament provides an opportunity for the country's top female players to showcase their talent and become role models for young players. It is also a platform to nurture and develop amateur talent. 

    JUNIOR TOURNAMENT 

    In a ground-breaking move for golf development in the country, the City of Tshwane will play host to the Tshwane Open Junior Tournament on 26 February. This tournament takes place at the Irene Country Club, and entrance is free, so everyone will be able to come on over and watch our future champions in action. We would like to thank Sekela Xabiso and Jaguar Centurion for being the official sponsor for the Tshwane Open Junior Tournament. 

    CHAMPIONS BREAKFAST 

    In keeping with our claim to be a city of champions, we will be hosting a Breakfast of Champions during the Tshwane Open. This year we are thrilled to have two Rugby World Cup winners spend a morning with us – the former Springbok captain Victor Matfield and former Springbok scrum half Fourie du Preez. 

    AUDI BEAT THE PRO 

    The 2017 Tshwane Open has added a new fun element to the tournament. In the first of its kind in South Africa, 15 amateur golfers will take on professionals in the Audi Beat the Pro competition. This takes place during the Tshwane Open on Saturday 4 March at the Audi-sponsored 14th hole at the Pretoria Country Club and is something that you cannot afford to miss.  

  • Replacement of Clubview and Hennopspark water reticulation network

    Replacement of Clubview and Hennopspark water reticulation network

    Fri, Feb 17, 2017

    The MMC for Infrastructure, Cllr Darryl Moss, handed over a project site to a contractor on Thursday, 16 February 2017 to mark the start of the replacement of the water reticulation network for Region 4, particularly Clubview and Hennopspark. 

    This is desperately needed due to the dolomitic geology and the possibility of sinkholes forming when water pipes leak in the area.

    The water reticulation network pipes in Clubview and Hennopspark are 75 mm asbestos cement pipes that were installed in the 1980s. The purpose of this project is to replace the most critical sections of the existing water reticulation network, which have deteriorated to such an extent that they have become unserviceable.

    Pipes in Clubview will be replaced at the following locations:

    1. Lyttelton Road between Von Willigh and Leyden Avenue
    2. Leyden Avenue between Lyttelton and Durham Road 

     

    Pipes will be replaced in Hennopspark at the following locations:

    1. Maroela Road between Olive and Acacia Road
    2. Tambotie Road between Olive and Acacia Road
    3. Acacia Road between Olive and Maroela Road 

     

    The project scope includes the installation of about 3 500 m of HDPE water pipes and the replacement of all valves, communication pipes and water meters, if required.

    "The appointment of our contractor – Homes 2000 (Pty) Ltd – is for a duration of six months and the schedule is currently to start with the Clubview portion and then continue with Hennopspark. This water project must be completed by August this year," said Moss during the meeting.

    City of Tshwane launches SMS campaign for a drug-free Tshwane

    Wed, Feb 15, 2017

    The City of Tshwane in association with the non-profit organisation Face of Tshwane (FOTA) launched a Charity Drive Plea SMS campaign on Monday 13 February in Pretoria West.  

    According to FOTA, the purpose of this launch was to publicise the objectives of the Charity Drive Plea SMS campaign, which aims to contribute to the building of a state-of-the-art multipurpose rehabilitation and treatment centre in Ward 60. 

    It is envisioned that the establishment of such a centre will further accelerate the fight against drugs and substance abuse in our communities as well as enable the youth to make a meaningful contribution to the growth of the country's economy.  

    FOTA, a youth forum and stakeholder, joined hands with the City of Tshwane with the sole purpose of combating the fight against the scourge of drugs and substance abuse.

    The MMC for Health and Social Development, Cllr Sakkie du Plooy, said that the centre will also provide medical assistance to the drug users. He added that it is important that local drug action plan committees are formed to assist the City in the fight against drug and substance abuse.

    This partnership has been endorsed by the MEC for Social Development in Gauteng as a programmes related to youth skills empowerment and social development. Through the SMS campaign corporates, businesses and society at large will be encouraged to make a generous offering that will ensure the realisation and building of the multipurpose rehabilitation and treatment centre. To support this cause, you can SMS the word "TswaDaar" to 38844 (an SMS costs R10).
