The Margate Community Hall was a scene of much excitement as sixty five traffic wardens from the Ray Nkonyeni municipality received their RTMC certification last Thursday.

The wardens had been receiving training for the past few months through a partnership with the Nelson Mandela Bay metro. Speaking at the event, Her Worship the mayor acknowledged that there has been a serious public outcry about the perceived ineffectiveness of the Traffic section. Therefore Council had taken the decision to have the officers trained in an effort to capacitate them.

She told the officers that their qualification meant that Council no longer expected excuses for failure to deal with traffic offenders. She emphasized that Council had done its part; it was now the duty of the officers to restore the trust of the public in their capabilities.

Ms Nokuthula Cele, who until recently had been working as a reservist in the department was awarded a trophy as an outstanding student, in recognition of her commitment and academic excellence.

  The Municipal Manager urged the newly graduated officers to uphold the vision of the municipality by creating a safe environment for both locals and visitors as they go about in the execution of their duties.
