Zululand Observer - Weekender - - ZO NEWS - Muzi Zin­c­ume

THE Iseluleko Sezandla Foun­da­tion, to­gether with the Ulusha Foun­da­tion, will host an aware­ness cam­paign to in­form com­mu­ni­ties about the dan­gers of swim­ming while un­der the in­flu­ence of al­co­hol.

Event or­gan­iser, Seluleko Kha­sibe, said the main pur­pose of the cam­paign is to warn es­pe­cially beach-go­ers to act re­spon­si­bly in front of chil­dren and stay away from al­co­hol abuse while su­per­vis­ing their chil­dren at the beach.

‘There is a lot of in­ap­pro­pri­ate and im­moral be­hav­iour by adults at swim­ming pools and at the beach. That is why we de­cided to launch this cam­paign to­gether with Ulusha Foun­da­tion so that we can speak to the com­mu­nity about these so­cials ills,’ said Kha­sibe.

He said the event will take place on Sat­ur­day, 8 De­cem­ber and there will be a fun walk from 5Ways Mall, end­ing at the Em­pan­geni Rugby Club, where in­vited guests will be af­forded an op­por­tu­nity to ad­dress the com­mu­nity.

‘As a pro­fes­sional swim­mer, I will also be giv­ing some swim­ming tips to en­sure we re­duce drown­ing in­ci­dents dur­ing this fes­tive sea­son.

‘The Ulusha Foun­da­tion will be rep­re­sented by its chair­per­son, Than­dux­olo Sa­belo,’ said Kha­sibe.
