City of Tshwane Deputy Mayor conducts successful service delivery programme in Ga-Rankuwa

Last week Friday, 9 February 2024, I concluded a highly impactful service delivery oversight programme in Ga-Rankuwa.

Accompanied by the MMC for Environment and Agriculture Management, Cllr Ziyanda Zwane, we paid a visit to Ya Bana Village for the children, where we participated in the Winterveld community clean-up initiative.

Ya Bana Village is a non-governmental child and youth care centre that not only provides love and care to 58 orphaned and vulnerable children aged 2 to 17 years, but has also been actively involved in community outreach. One of its latest initiatives is combating illegal dumping by encouraging community members to collect litter and rubbish in refuse bags. In exchange for their efforts, individuals are awarded “Ya Bana Village Moola” which can be used to purchase essential food items from the on-site tuckshop.

I was genuinely impressed by this innovative approach to promoting environmental care within the community and I salute Ya Bana Village for their great work.

Our programme then continued to Ga-Rankuwa, where I joined dedicated teams responsible for a range of urban management functions.

These included cleaning activities, cutting grass, cutting and pruning trees, repairing potholes, conducting infrastructure maintenance and clearing illegal dumping sites, among others. The impact of this service delivery programme cannot be overstated. The diligent efforts of all involved significantly improve the quality of life for the residents of Ga-Rankuwa.

I extend my heartfelt gratitude to the community for their enthusiastic participation in the Ya Bana Village clean-up and for their shared vision of creating a cleaner, safer and more vibrant city.
