    SINCE the South African government de-

    clared the first Saturday of November as Na-

    tional Childrens Day, the Nelson Mandela

    BayMunicipality has invited dozens of school

    children to engage in a warm debate and talk

    about their environment, heritage, and their

    rights on this day.

    The event took place at the City Hall in Port

    Elizabeth, where learners from different

    schools of the Bay represented their schools

    in the 2013 themewhich is My responsibility

    as a child in nation building: Creating a car-

    ing society.

    The learners were selected from Sophaka-

    ma High School, Lwandlekazi High, Newell

    High,KwazakheleHigh, andKhanyisaSchool

    For The Blind, while entertainment was pro-

    vided by Empumalanga Primary School.

    Kuhle Nqana from Kwazakhele High said,

    If wewant to start grooming people, wemust

    start by grooming ourselves. And if we want

    to become a better South Africa, we must do

    it without manipulating.

    A learner fromSophakamaHigh,Noluvuyo

    Mhlomi, said, Most of our school learners

    come from families that depend on social

    grants to make a living. About 70% of our

    school learners are

    living in shacks.

    Anelisa Tetyana,

    also fromSophaka-

    ma High, said, I

    would like to urge

    learners to be re-

    sponsible for their

    actions. People who dont know where they

    are coming from, wont know where they are

    going. Be unique and be the voice for the

    voiceless.

    People must learn to think out of the box,

    not within the box. Live to do good things and

    be an icon like OR Tambo, Nelson Mandela,

    and Chris Hani.

    Yanela Mpalweni from Kwazakhele High

    said, I am a proud Sutu girl and would like

    to talk about heritage. Heritage is not about

    painting your face with traditional make-up

    whatsoever. It is about education. If you have

    education, it will never be taken away from

    you. We often look down on ourselves but if

    we canbeproudof ourselves, nomatterwhere

    we come from, we will knowwhere we are go-

    ing.

    Mabuti Dano from Constituency Services

    office of the NMBM said he was very proud

    once again to host this years Childrens Day

    event. The main objective of Childrens Day

    is to celebrate, popularize and promote the

    Constitutional mandate to ensure that South

    African society upholds the human rights for

    the children.

    TheNMBMhas engaged itself inmanychil-

    drens rights programmes that include

    among many, Childrens Forum, Childrens

    Advisory Council, and Established Debate

    Forums.

    AN illegal strike that started yesterday

    morning affected the refuse collection in

    all areas of Nelson Mandela Bay Munici-

    pality.

    This is according to municipal spokes-

    person Kupido Baron.

    This means that no domestic waste or

    trade waste collection services can at this

    stage be rendered as toolswere downed at

    our Uitenhage, Despatch, Motherwell,

    Struandale, Gail Road and Harrower

    Road depots, Baron said yesterday.

    Baron urged residents in the mean

    time, to make use of the nearest garden

    and landfill sites to dispose of their refuse

    bags, adding that this would continue un-

    til the next collection date.

    The municipality had, however, put

    steps inplace todealwith the illegal strike

    activity and trusted that service delivery

    in this department would be back to nor-

    mal soon.

    Well bemeeting later today (Tuesday)

    with the representatives of the aggrieved

    employeeswith thehope of finding a solu-

    tion to the problem.

    Although themunicipality could follow

    a legal route as the the strike was illegal,

    Baron said they were hoping that the

    meetingwouldyield results.Details of the

    meeting could not be obtained before the

    PE Express Indaba went to print.
