The North West Provincial Government will kick-start a week-long mega Setsokotsane Outreach Programme with special focus on cleaning-up and patching potholes in the capital city of the North West Province, Mahikeng.
Led by the Mahikeng Local Municipality, the provincial Department of Public Works and Roads and Office of the Premier, this joint campaign will start on Friday, 10thand end on Tuesday, 20th of February 2017.
Initiated as part of the broader Mahikeng Rebranding, Repositioning and Renewal Programme (MRRRP) and the provincial Social Mobilisation Ten (10) Point Plan, the cleaning campaign will see the provincial government bringing necessary human and technical resources together, this in a bid to maximise impact.
According to Dr Lydia Sebego, the province’s Director General, this initiative is in line with one of the province’s Ten (10) Point Plan campaigns which put emphasis on the need to promote and achieve a sustainable clean and healthy environment that is compliant with policies.
“in support of this campaign, all the provincial departments will on specified days of the week, deploy a reasonable number of officials to participate in this initiative, this as part of demonstrating the provincial government’s Saamtrek-Saamwerk philosophy and the pronounced strategy on share-point services”, explained Dr Sebego, adding that the deployment of government will be in a coordinated manner.
In commencing this campaign, officials from Office of the Premier and department of Culture, Arts and Traditional Affairs will roll-up their sleeves and participate in the cleaning campaign on Friday, 10 February, with other departments scheduled to participate in the coming week, until the end of the campaign.
Members of the media are invited to cover the activities of this week-long joint campaign to clean-up and patching of potholes in the capital city of Mahikeng.
