Zakhele Nkosi Do you remember in June 2020 when Ubuciko Youth Development asked for data bundles from the municipality to assist people from Madadeni ,Blaaubosch and Osizweni with applications. The municipality speaker said that they cannot assist with that because it will cause unnecessary expenditure since NYDA do applications, yet NYDA was closed due to Covid. Now most tertiary programmes are close the municipality is able😅😅 . The worse part is that the same speaker runs the programme. This was supposed to be done long time ago. Most Tertiary institutions programmes are closed now. NSFAS is useless without a university space. Keep it up with your ignorance speaker. Sometimes it is good to apply practical experiance then lecturing us as you did. This programme is no longer fruitful.

Newcastle municipality are you for real? What is your function exactly,

Its election time .Time for visibility. Everything lays dormant till elections

Woow yazi woow..🙄towards de closing date vele n kids are busy with exams.🤔

What about the whole of Newcastle? There are Many that need it.

Progress program comrade, well done

Same place tomorrow?

Will this be taken to other areas of Newcastle too ?

Thanks alot

I hope you'll also provide funding or bursaries for those that don't/won't meet the minimum requirements but deserve to be in universities or colleges.

Great initiative please do it for other places also

Power to that initiative💪✊

I visited Osizweni Library and its WIFI is locked and when I enquire about the response was that"they are no longer allow community members to use it" What is the Library for if community members to members are not allowed to access it tools for communication?

You hours effectively bar employed people from using your facility. How are we supposed to borrow books if you're closed on Saturdays?

Please can you dig holes for those bins and make a ramp...most people send kids to throw out dirt and they can barely reach for that drop hence they throw around the Bins...... Please and keep up that good work

Thanx to Madadeni team

The only way to keep Newcastle clean ukuthi the municipality must provide bins for every household if possible and enough dumping bins ekasi, after that mpimpa hotline like katlehong when you c someone littering uyamceba anikwe a serious fine for ukungcolisa ekasi coz honestly it's very rare where by you see abongamla littering inkinga ikithi. Or else akube ne competition for the cleanest ward kune nama rewards

Ngyobe nginilindile e Soul City ngase Muiskraal

Well done everyone!!!!

Big up guys

Wat n donerse grap

Hope its not an electioneering mechanism!

Lmga

congratulations! Well done for your efforts. keep up the awesome work. While you work and clean up the mess after other people dumping their unwanted waste, pls educate that community/street / area not to dump and litter. That it poses a health hazzard and it is not nice to reside in an area that reminds you of a municipal dump/waste area. be proud of your community and make it beautiful and at least keep it clean and safe. The municipality can maybe host such events and maybe even invite the schools to take part by helping with a clean-up campaign together with the municipal workers?

What steps are you taking /have you taken to stop littering and dumping ? Ie, you are urging the citizens how ? Please mention the details and duration of the campaign, thanks.

Although you are trying to fix potholes, but as this trenching construction keeps on digging and leave sand over the roads especially along Barry Hertzog Park, we will see an increase of bad roads. Our drains will be blocked sooner and cause more damage to our roads. This thing is really really annoying now.

This road in esihlahleni Jakalasi is a mine and it gets flooded each time it rains. Dont forget that we are tax payers Mr Mayor. Our happiness must be your best intrest🙄

Well Done to the Team. However, we need to address the cause of the issue - We need to solve the non-existent & blocked storm water drain issue, then we will not have Potholes. The water that stays on the road, damages the road.

No offense to Mayor, but if we showed not even this much but half the enthusiasm and passion to creating robust, resilient, and economically sustainable/vibrant communities in the area and a productive youth we wouldn't need to smile for cameras like this for patching roads.

Well done Mayor. Next time please ensure wearing safety boots. So that you can work the whole day. Also inform the lady behind you to stop interrupting you as you are busy 😅

I'm sure sìzofaka i vote now, senibuyile!

Usjwayela kabi benobaba wakhe u Ramaphosa Bawalungisa ngoba sekzovotwa ...bayagula

Please we need tarred roads. In section 3 there's a school where all streets around it are not tarred. Sebenzani madoda.

Uyindoda emadodeni Junda💪

Yini le eniyenze la ngakwamakhulukhulu nifake ihlabathi yodwa nje

Keep it up the good work leader please open the swimming pool at Madadeni section 3 so we can take our children in these festive season

Progress appreciated, please do something about the Traffic Circle in Section6..next to Khazins...there is something wrong with drainage system.....

It was just for pictures surely he didn't even stay 30min there... Siyekeni

Children’s facilities at Amcor dam really need to be attended to. Please help 🙏🏽

Much appreciated, niboke nidlulele kulomgwaqo waseTheku plaza Uya erobotini empompini akumigodi kuyafiwa and ama phela abalekela wona Eze kuwe ngqo ku opposite side,please.

Nice Mr Mayor but where's your safety shoes.

"I will love the light for it shows me the way,yet i will endure the darkness because it shows me the stars". Never say never in life, because in my whole life i never for a single day ever thought of believing in spiritual healing but here I am today testifying about Mama Ashili that has made me the happiest person ever again.Last year so many worst things happened in my life, First my husband changed suddenly from a good husband to the worst because we even started fighting everyday,when i decided to leave our home with our 3 kids but I later realized that he had fallen in love with his workmate and decided to move in with her and left us just like that.I struggled to make ends meet because he even cut us off completely without even sending child support.I went into depression and I was ever stressed because the children were ever asking me their father and I ran out of answers.I tried so many ways of bringing him back like going to different spiritual healers but they were all giving me empty promises,I never gave up and as I was reading a magazine I landed on an article of Mama Ashili on bringing back lost lovers and many other spells she does,I never hesitated to call her straight away and I was given an appointment,when I want there mama guaranteed me to have my husband in few days,we performed the prayers together that we did day and night,on the third day as I was coming from work I found my husband home playing with the kids.He cried his heart out and asked for forgiveness and apologized for all the wrongs he has ever done to us that he didn't know what was into him to make us go through that misery that his family meant everything and wanted a fresh start, I was happy inside because all I wanted to hear was him apologizing and all I wished was for my kids to grow up with a father figure which Mama Ashili made come true.I promised her that one day I will come out and testify about her spiritual powers that do wonders.I know many people crying with the same problem as mine because there's nothing that hurts as a broken marriage seeing your kids going through difficult times because of our deeds.Fight for your marriage and your kids happiness and I guarantee you Mama Ashili will bring the happiness back in your life. call/whats-app her +27782312848
