What do you think about ... Simtembile Mgidi
This week, The Rep reporter
took to the streets of Komani to ask, “What can people do to contribute towards the care of their towns, instead of just complaining?” help in your street or area to collect garbage and this could help us bring back the old, clean Komani.
As a community, we could form groups where we wear gloves and clean up our own town. This would show that we are patriotic and love our town.
Our town is dirty. People throw their rubbish wherever they want. We could start by throwing rubbish in a dustbin, instead of throwing it on the ground or if there is no bin, keeping it until you are at home.
We just donated food to a child who asked us for something to eat versus asking for money. I am the owner of a take-away and the profits I make from it are to fund my daycare.
I am planning to use the money generated from Little Explorers to generate funds for a children’s home that I want to start in Komani, as there is a desperate need for it. If people in our community could stand together to help the less privileged, it could lead to less crime.
I am in school and my school is part of the Go Green campaign, but we could still do more to help.
We could host special fundraisers and the profits made could be donated to assist with the running of the SPCA, but it is also difficult for busy parents to attend such functions.
