ROCKERIES are to be put up at the corner of Target Kloof and King George’s Road in Mill Park as the ward councillor attempts to move out of the area a group of beggars who have been living there for at least five years.

Ward 3 DA councillor Dave Hayselden said he had received complaints from residents who did not want the beggars at the busy Port Elizabeth intersection.

Some motorists have also complained that beggars often disrupted traffic. Hayselden said they had decided to build the rockeries after they had tried and failed to remove the beggars.

    The problem is simply that we keep on giving to the beggars. As a result they have an incentive to work there. Do you want to tell me that over the last five years, no-one has offered any one of them jobs as a gardener @R200 per day? Then again I guess they make more than that.

    Here’s a trick that seldom fails. Calculate the time and effort you’ll be devoting to the construction of the rockeries. Then assign those resources to finding a solution to the problem. You might surprise yourselves.
