The Newlands East Watch Community Safety, in partnership with Ward 11 Councillor Obed Qulo, eThekwini Municipality, DSW, Correctional Services Department, Safer Cities and Parks and Gardens Department started the ‘My City, Our City Clean-Up Campaign’ in the area of Newlands East. The campaign aims to clean up the area and get rid of all alien invasive plants in the local parks.

“Our parks have become bushes, a haven for criminal activities. We are cleaning the parks and removing the dangerous plants in the area. We want to make these parks a nice environment for the whole family to sit, relax and have braai’s,” said Lawrence Palmer, who is the President of the Newlands East Watch Community Safety.

Ward 11 councillor, Obed Qulo, said, “We urge the community to attend the clean-up campaigns as this is one of the many phases of the campaign. We are aiming to get rid of all alien invasive plants and make the community of Newlands East a safe area by cutting the bushy areas that surround schools.”
