AS the country celebrates Madiba Day by donating 67 minutes for a good cause many people in the Kouga will also be doing their bit.
In Jeffreys Bay councillor Ncedile Meleni of Ward 14, has invited residents to help clean up Makukhanye Primary School and the creche in Tokyo Sexwale.
“Let’s all get on board and make a difference, on this our beloved Madiba’s birthday,” he said.
Volunteers can bring their own cleaning equipment and meet at the advice office at 8am. From there they will proceed to the designated venues.
Meleni said he was able to secure application forms for the nationwide recruitment drive by the navy and army, and that he would be bringing them along.
He encouraged the youth between the ages of 18 to 22 years who are interested in joining to bring along certified copies of their identification documents and their matric certificates. The recruitment is aimed more towards those who took math and science at school.
The councillor also said those with tertiary qualifications are welcome to apply as long as they are between 22 and 26. He said this does not guarantee employment, but is an avenue worth exploring.
