Thousands of residents lined up and raised their hands for a fair chance to work for the municipality. They listed their skills and put their names on the database targeting 300 000 job seekers between the ages of 18 and 60.
The registrations will take place in various communities in the whole of Tshwane until September 13.
Executive mayor Stevens Mokgalapa visited Sammy Marks Square and was greeted with long queues of people who were there to register. He said he was impressed by the turnout.
“I’m very happy and I had the opportunity to oversee the work being done here by our team. The queues are seamless. Job seekers go to the officials to verify their physical addresses, receive reference numbers and then fill in the forms. These forms get to be captured in the database.
