Johannesburg - City of Johannesburg Mayor Herman Mashaba was on Wednesday sweeping the streets, pruning trees and painting roads marking of Soweto.
Mashaba was accompanied by the City of Tshwane Mayor, Stevens Mokgalapa, and the Mayor of Midvaal Local Municipality, Bongani Baloyi. They were launching an expansion of the monthly A Re Sebetseng volunteer clean-up campaign to the municipalities of Tshwane and Midvaal.
A Re Sebetseng was first launched in Johannesburg in August 2017.
Mashaba said #AReSebetsengGauteng will now seek to broaden the spirit of community volunteerism to City of Tshwane and Midvaal Local Municipality, and hopefully, across Gauteng.
"I truly believe that #AReSebetseng has the potential to not only change the face of Johannesburg but to also inspire the nation. I look forward to the partnership between the municipalities of Joburg, Midvaal and Tshwane in helping to build cleaner, safer and more connected communities. The people of our respective municipalities will benefit from our collaboration as we ensure the spirit of volunteerism transcends municipal boundaries in Gauteng," said Mashaba.
