The Dawid Kruiper municipality recently cleaned the streets of Paballelo and David Street in the C.B.D after we experienced a lot of rain. The clean- up process is part of the daily and monthly processes of the municipality. The residents of Upington were elated to see that their streets are cleaned.
The Dawid Kruiper municipality is rated among the cleanest municipal areas in the Northern Cape Province. It can compete at a national level also . Dawid Kruiper has got a number of National as well Provincial trophies to show for that.
The D.K.M (shortened version of Dawid Kruiper Municipality) also has continuous information sessions and consumer education sessions on a clean environment and vandalism. This campaign is gaining ground because less complaints are received from the communities on refuse which is dumped at non-designated areas. The Executive Mayor of D.K.M is the chief campaigner of a clean municipal area. She talks about a clean area in all her engagements with the community through the Council Meets the People Program, IDP meetings, budget and ward committee meetings.

The Dawid Kruiper Municipality is making free internet service available to the public. This will assist them in accessing information and adverts on jobs. It can also assist the public in accessing information on starting small or big businesses.
‘The free internet can contribute greatly in uplifting the living standards of our communities,’ said Me Limakatso Koloi, the Executive Mayor of the Dawid Kruiper Municipality. We are also glad to assist the learners and students in doing research via the internet.
We are aware that a lot of households do not have access to the internet and are therefore limited in terms of access to information. Access to information is a fundamental right and we are assisting the community in exercising that right.
Albert Eintein once said that: “Information is knowledge.”. The more the access to information, the more informed your community will be. The municipality has also embarked on a process of sending the account and water meter readings via the electronic media. Rate payers can access the municipal website and send their water meter readings via the website to the municipality.
