IN ITS endless endeavour to create job opportunities for residents, eThekwini Municipality has employed 1000 people to be part of the City’s Community Work Programme (CWP) which will ensure a cleaner looking Durban.

Mayor Zandile Gumede inducted 40 CWP Supervisors on 9 November that will ensure the smooth roll-out of the programme in 40 Municipal wards as a pilot project. The induction held at the Durban City Hall educated team leaders about the positive impact this innovative government programme has on people’s lives.

Mayor Gumede said the supervisors will be working with a team of 25 people in each ward to clean schools, clinics and other government buildings. “We currently have a group of 1000 programme participant that will work two days a week and will earn a stipend of R 7000 a month.

This forms part of the poverty elevation programme as most people that are part of this programme were selected from our community upliftment programmes, including ward committees, Operation Sukuma Sakhe and Masakhane programmes,” said Mayor Gumede CWP Project Coordinator Sihle Cossa said: “Their work in communities will be in line with the Mayor’s Operation Khuculul’iTheku Campaign.

Over and above cleaning Municipal building and school, they will also be working in community gardens. This is aimed at encouraging people to venture into farming.”
