PR Councillor intervenes in Zandspruit’s service delivery

Ward 114 DA PR councillor Belinda Kayser-Echeozonjoku has pushed for proper service delivery in Zandspruit, following the consistent rise of illegal dumping in the community.

Cllr Kayser-Echeozonjoku said she took action after receiving receiving several complaints from the Zandspruit community members.

“On Wednesday, 30 January 2019, I received several phone calls,” she said.

“The community members were unhappy with Pikitup having not collected their refuse at the usual collection points, in addition to illegal dumping in the area which has risen. The complainants forwarded me some photos of eye sore filth.”

When the community members recently held meetings with the local authorities, they were told to address the issue with the members of Democratic Alliance, according to the residents.

“When I heard of this,” Cllr Kayser-Echeozonjoku said, “I immediately raised the issue of the non-collection of refuse on the Pikitup WhatsApp group. Thereafter, some areas received relief, while others remained with uncollected rubbish.”

After no feedback for 48 hours and still getting calls from community members, the councillor said she made another followed-up.

“Since the residents allege that the ward councillor is not responding to them,” the PR councillor said, “part of our role is to escalate these issues to the various municipal owned entities, in order for service delivery to take place especially since they allege that the Ward Councillor is not responding to them.”

As a public representative working in Zandspruit, Cllr Kayser-Echeozonjoku said she will continue to escalate the service delivery issues of the people of Zandspruit.

“My role as a Councillor is not to be biased,” she said. “I will not be intimidated nor bullied into bowing down to those who want their egos to be massaged and who want to delay service delivery to the people of Zandspruit.” 

She said she would like to thank the City of Johannesburg officials for working tirelessly to bring Diphetogo (Real Change) to the people of Zandspruit.

“There seems to be a perception by the Ward Councillor that the role of the PR Councillor is to report to him. However, our role as Councillors is to do oversight, and to ensure that the communities in which we serve get service delivery, said Cllr Cllr Kayser-Echeozonjoku.

MoreLife gets nominated for National Community Radio Station awards

Cosmo FM presenter Molefi Seqhala, popularly known as MoreLife, is making a name for himself in the broadcasting industry. He has been nominated for the 2018-19 National Community Radio Week awards as the best presenter for his Afternoon Drive and Music Show.

The National Community Radio Week awards happen annually and it is organized by Thoughts Lounge in conjunction with the Free State Provincial government. It is aimed at uplifting community radio personalities in all provinces by awarding them recognition in different categories. The closing date for voting of nominees is 28th of February.

Over 250 participants, from over 66 community radio stations from across the country will join MoreLife in Manguang for a week from 28 February. The last day of the week-long event will conclude with an awards ceremony where different presenters will be rewarded for their outstanding work in their respective communities.

MoreLife’s love for radio encouraged him to pursue a career in broadcasting despite being a professional engineer. He joined Cosmo FM in 2017as a presenter for the Midday Delight Show.  That radio show set his wheels in motion, and he has been riding the wave since.

“Radio is my passion, and I am very happy to be nominated,” MoreLife told the Chronicle. “I had been pushing for radio opportunities since 2015. I was very grateful when I got an opportunity at Cosmo FM. I vividly remember my first day to present the Midday Delight show. When I went to inquire about presenting opportunities, the regular presenter was ill and I was told to go behind the microphone without preparing.”

MoreLife said that he had to impress and do the best on his first day on radio. After that he became a regular presenter for the Midday Delight show and other Cosmo FM shows. His voice became well-liked on the Cosmic Drive Show with MoreLife and the Connect Show with MoreLife which eventually saw him nominated for the awards.

 “Being nominated shows that I am making a lot of progress in the broadcasting industry,” MoreLife said. “I respect my listeners; I do not go on air unprepared. In the music show, I strive to bring a moment of fun even if the song is old. I also inform people and give them some advice. I think my nomination will remain in the history of Cosmo FM.”

MoreLife said that he grew up listening to Lesedi FM, and he would love to work for the SABC radio station.
