The Ray Nkonyeni Municipality has now shifted its focus by targeting the Izingolweni Community on its Operation Sihlanza Amadolobha Campaign and Illegal Dumping penalties. 

This follows a campaign which took place last week as an informative and advocacy initiative which was held at the Taxi Rank in town at Ezingolweni whereby the community and stakeholders gathered discussing issues pertaining to how to maintain cleanliness in their town.

This campaign was slightly different than the previous clean up campaigns as it encompassed advocacy, which focused on bringing an awareness into our towns and thereby keeping our municipality clean. The campaign was marked with a thorough clean-up of the taxi rank and the removal of abortion stickers at some points. This campaign was designed to ensure that responsibility is being shared amongst the partners which include stakeholders such as Business Association, Taxi Owners, commuters and the general public.

On that date, stakeholders were also taken through the new Nuisance and Behaviour in Public Places Bylaw 2017 since it came into effect on the first day of January 2018. The main focus was on Illegal Dumping penalties and measures for preventing and prohibit certain activities or conduct in public places in as far as illegal dumping is concerned. A stern warning was communicated that penalties would be issued if one was caught transgressing the municipal bylaws.
