Local residents realised that their surroundings were dirty and unhygienic and voluntarily decided to embark on a cleaning spree to tidy their community. On June 8, local resident Irene Mahlakoane gathered local people to make Diphale spotless. They first assembled at Mohlala Morudi Secondary School at 08:00. More than 30 community members joined in the effort.
“Our aim is to attain a clean, safe and healthy environment; we hate to see our community engulfed by dirt. It hurts to see young children playing in the filthy streets. There are bottles and cans on the streets that can injure the kids.
“We wish to collect all the litter around the schools, churches and the community halls.Our plan is to protect and preserve the environment for future
generations,” said Mahlakoane.
She urged locals to avoid dumping diapers, condoms and dirt everywhere. “Our people dump Willy nilly, we plan to conduct campaigns in urging them to refrain from the bad deeds.” The cleaning process also took place at Tswako Primary and Dihlabakela High School.
