by in Local government statements on 16 April, 2014

AfriForum and the Pro-Park Association in Witbank (eMalahleni) appealed to the Witbank community to keep Witbank green. The Municipality is planning on closing the park in Extension 10 in order to build a mosque on the site.

AfriForum has launched a project in Mpumalanga, warning motorists against dangerous potholes. The warning signs to motorists, which are planted next to roads in Lydenburg, Ermelo, Secunda, Standerton, Witbank (eMalahleni), Belfast and Machadodorp, hint at the inability of Mpumalanga municipalities to maintain roads. The project also serves as encouragement to municipalities to act.
