Umkhanyakude gets INVOLVED on Mandela Day!
This day not only celebrates Nelson Mandela’s life, but it is also a global call to action for people to recognise their ability to have a positive effect on others around them. The mayor together with municipal officials and staff were involved in various programs throughout the District. This year the theme was “Working Together for a Cleaner South Africa”.
The Mayor hung up his chains for the day and together with his team, led a clean up campaign at one of the local schools in Mseleni. Mayor SJ Vilane together with Deputy Mayor Cllr. Chris Swartz even got stuck into a little construction work, mixing up the cement on site! In keeping with Mandela’s spirit and vision for South Africa, the Mayor stresses the importance of treating every day as Mandela Day.
