George Municipality invested in the Thembalethu community by taking hands with the new online radio station, LOLIM, who initiated a seven day cleanup in their environment.
Deputy Mayor of George, Cllr Charlotte Clarke, said she is very happy with this initiative and said it is long overdue for locals to help the Municipality to keep our environment clean. “It does make the work of the Municipality easier. Thank you also to our officials who really do their best at cleaning the town,” Clarke said.
George Municipality assisted with brooms, spades, refuse bags and other tools to assist in the cleaning of the area with officials from the Cleansing Department also present. The group started on Friday and will finish the operation this coming Friday, 23 August.
Past. Msimbithi Dlomo, CEO of Lolim Radio, said the radio station has been on air for 2 months. They use youth volunteers to do broadcasting and to gather news stories. Dlomo is the pastor of Light of Life International Ministries (Lolim). “We started the radio station to develop our community. We also want our community to have a good image and that is why we approached the Municipality to assist us in cleaning the area,” Dlomo said.
