We are commemorating June 16 this week. The whole month of June is dedicated to the Youth of this country. The June 16 1976 uprising began in Soweto and spread countrywide. It profoundly changed the socio-political landscape in South Africa. Events that triggered the uprising can be traced back to the introduction of the Bantu Education Act in 1953.

Four decades down the line, I would like to take this opportunity to encourage our youth to take education seriously. The youth should stay away from drugs and substance abuse. The youth should not do crime or buy stolen goods. The youth should not abuse women and children but should rather protect them.


I wish the youth all the best!!!

Me L. Koloi

Executive Mayor: Dawid Kruiper Municipality

Ladies and Gentlemen

Welcome to the council meeting. I am going to present the 2018/2019 budget to you.

At the very advent of our democracy, as the nation was emerging from more than three centuries of colonial oppression, which President Nelson Mandela described as an “extraordinary human disaster that [had] lasted too long”, he urged that out of that experience had to be born a society of which all humanity would be proud. To our highly expectant nation, he addressed the following words, that:

“Our daily deeds as ordinary South Africans must produce an actual South African reality that will reinforce humanity’s belief in justice, strengthen its confidence in the nobility of the human soul and sustain all our hopes for a glorious life for all.”

This is the challenge of our time,

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.
