Minister Mthethwa to serve the Mthatha community for Mandela Day

Pretoria, 14 July 2011 - In celebration of Madibas 93rd birthday on Monday 18th, Minister Nathi Mthethwa will dirty his hands serving the public at the Mthatha Police Station, after-which he will be in overalls cleaning up the small Eastern Cape town as his contribution to making South Africa a better and safe country.

Minister Mthethwa is both the Minister of Police and the Acting Minister for Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs (CoGTA), hence his devotion of 67 minutes to policing and another 67 minutes to cleaning up Mthatha.

He will be taking statements from crime victims, inspecting the police station as well as assisting in any administrative duties as required by the station.  In addition to cleaning up Mthatha as part of CoGTAs Clean Cities & Towns campaign, the Minister will also plant trees at the St Johns College, Jonguhlanga, Ngangelizwe and Mkhathini high schools around Mthatha.

Time permitting; Minister Mthethwa will also spend time applying a coat of paint to Ngangelizwe High School as part of CoGTAs Community Work Programme (CWP)s 67 minutes contribution to Mandela Day.

Members of the media are invited to be part of the campaign:

Date: Monday, 18 July 2011
Venues: 1. Mthatha Police Station (09:00 10h00)
          2. Mthatha City Hall Gardens (11h00 15h00)

The celebration of Mandela Day aims to serve as a global call to action for people to "recognise their individual power to make an imprint and help change the world around them for the better", the Nelson Mandela Foundation said at the launch of the campaign in April.

Issued jointly by the Ministries of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs and Police. .
