Mongameli Mnyameni has a vision for ward 124

IN WAITING: Ward councillor candidate in Ward 124, Mongameli Mnyameni.

STAYING in one area for over two decades gives you a special kind of bond with that place. It is almost as if a part of you is embedded in its history. This is how Johannesburg resident Mongameli Mnyameni feels.

Mnyameni is standing as the African National Congress’ ward councillor candidate in Ward 124.

The ward includes the following voting districts: Selby Central Office, Tender Advice Centre City Power, Reuven, Senior Complex, Pioneer Administration Hall, Forest Hill School, Southern Suburbs Bowling Club and Johannesburg City Hall.

“I have invested most of my life in this area and I have an interest to see our ward being among the preferred wards to live in within Johannesburg. I want to contribute to realising that goal,” said the nominated candidate.

Mnyameni became the president of the student representative council in 1994 during his secondary school years and went on to play various roles as a clergyman, a shop steward and also in the civic organisation movement.

He believes the experience he has accumulated over the years will come in handy in serving the community.

The soft-spoken man holds a National Diploma in Human Resources Management and business administration and a certificate in production management.

He says that should the community of Ward 124 give him an opportunity to serve them, his priorities will include:

• Introducing skills development programmes for the unemployed, especially the youth

• Eradicating drugs and substance abuse in our communities and shutting down brothels and drug houses

• Introducing programmes to assist those trapped in prostitution with rehabilitation and re-integration into communities

• Partnering with communities and law enforcement agencies in fighting crime

• Closing down illegal colleges in our area

• Fighting the hijacking of properties and assisting displaced communities reclaim their properties

• Championing the Turffontein Corridors of Freedom to keep our ward clean, safe, economically viable and prosperous.

Mnyameni has pledged to work with all sectors of society in the ward.

He believes government is about local communities working together to ensure their neighbourhoods are liveable and free of crime and nuisances.
