Mayor Bahula continues COVID-19 awareness drives

GA-MARISHANE/GLEN COWIE – Makhuduthamaga Local Municipality remains persistent on its fight against the spread of COVID-19 within the local municipality.

The local municipality Mayor Minah Bahula has on Tuesday, 15 September 2020, extended her COVID-19 awareness and monitoring on compliance and protocols to Ga-Marishane and Glen Cowie post offices respectively.

Mayor Bahula, in her capacity as Chairperson of the Local Covid-19 Command Council, and her team identified South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) pay-points as hotspots for non-compliance.

The local Command Council Chairperson and her team therefore took it upon themselves to enforce the regulations on COVID-19 as prescribed. Bahula cautioned members of the community against complacency.

She said people ought not to relax and forget that COVID-19 was very much alive and that it would still be with people for a long time.

“It is our primary responsibility as government to ensure that regulations as prescribed are adhered to at all times,” said Bahula.

The local council chairperson committed to dispatch EPWP workforce to post offices and other strategic areas to help monitor and ensure that people continued to take safety measures seriously.

Mayor Bahula concluded that they have also noticed during their interaction with people at Ga-Marishane that the elderly were struggling when queuing at pay-points and promised to intervene through arranging chairs to help them.

The mayor’s Tuesday’s campaign was preceded by a walk-about recently at the Jane Furse Plaza Post Office and Schoonoord pay-points respectively.
