has indeed sprung! On Friday, 7 September, the Office of the Chief Whip
welcomed the spring season the healthy way by hosting Tshwane Councillors
Sports Day 2018, through which City of Tshwane Councillors and top management
showed their team spirit on a sport field.
the first event last year, this year features multiple sporting activities such
as aerobics, tug of war, athletics, netball, cycling and soccer.
event was not only about playing games but offered a full health check in the
spirit of wellness. The health screenings conducted were free of charge and
covered blood pressure, blood glucose, diabetes, cholesterol and weight
assessment. Promoting healthy lifestyles through education on HIV/AIDS and
other sexually transmitted diseases formed part of the wellness aspect.
a doubt, Tshwane as the capital city has to be at the forefront of social
cohesion. The day was about promoting councillor wellness and building positive
relations amongst them.
top management officials made it to this unique event, including the Executive
Mayor, Cllr Solly Msimanga; the City Manager, Dr Moeketsi Mosola; and the Chief
Whip, Cllr Christo van den Heever.
rain stopped the order of the day – on the slippery lawns Cllr Msimanga and
members of the Mayoral Committee played soccer versus the City of Tshwane
Councillors. This was very interesting to watch, and even more interesting when
Councillors participated in other blood-rushing activities.
legends of SuperSport residing in Tshwane participated in most of the games.
games ended with a lucky draw and a prize-giving ceremony.
