Gauteng Department of Infrastructure Development has partnered with Moral Regeneration Movement to encourage citizens to take ownership of public assets and to stop vandalism and destruction of schools and clinics.
This is part of the iCareWeCare Campaign which was launched last year to address the phenomena of the destruction of public property and facilities.
Gauteng MEC for Infrastructure Development, Jacob Mamabolo, says this campaign is vital as his department has a responsibility to ensure that infrastructure is protected.
He says the campaign has reached about 4.5 million people on Twitter since June 2016.
4.5 people reached by this campaign clearly demonstrates that people are fully behind this campaign.— Jacob Mamabolo, Gauteng MEC for Infrastructure Development
The campaign has improved our ability to hear the voice of the people and make sure that our conduct must reflect that we have heard and we continue to hear critical voices of our people.— Jacob Mamabolo, Gauteng MEC for Infrastructure Development
Mamabolo also explained the importance of partnering with Moral Regeneration Movement.
He says they will soon start going out to communities to clean up the streets.
I think it will be excellent if we were to remove the Chinese wall between government and the people.— Jacob Mamabolo, Gauteng MEC for Infrastructure Development
If we were to achieve the objectives of the campaign we must work with and amongst with the people.— Jacob Mamabolo, Gauteng MEC for Infrastructure Development
