Waste, leaks projects create jobs

Rejoice Mabudafhasi, the deputy minister of Water and Environment, officially launched the War on Waste and Leaks project at the function held in Emerald Casino, urging residents to actively participate in fighting leaks.

Mabudafhasi introduced a No Drop Concept where no leaks are expected from Municipalities. It was established in the summit that Emfuleni has a water loss reduction of 6.6%, and through different projects such as Boloka Metsi, which includes Emfuleni, GIZ and Rand Water jobs were created and communities trained on how to reduce water loss.

Executive Mayor talks tough with learners

“If you don't listen to your teachers attentively, you will fail. We don't want learners who waste time drinking beer and smoking dagga, whilst girls get pregnant at the tender age instead of studying for a brighter future”, warned the executive mayor, Greta Hlongwane.

This is a tough message the Executive mayor delivered during her recent school visit at Ramosokola and Ramolelle Schools. The executive mayor was accompanied by PriMedia Outdoor Group which donated stationery packs to needy learners.
