Johannesburg Development Agency's first ever A Re Sebetseng - “Building a better City"

MESSAGE FROM: Christo Botes (Acting Chief Executive Officer)

The JDA made this, their first ever A Re Sebetseng as a team, and JDA Acting CEO, Christo Botes believe it was a huge success. It showed the ever present JDA “YES WE WILL!” team spirit that I know we possess, and we can all be proud of that.

We believe that as the JDA, we need to commit to doing this once a month and that we focus on our own “backyard” - the Newtown Precinct. Today we were joined by SAPS Central as well the Justice Department’s Family Court. In future we will ensure that more of our neighbours get involved.

I believe the more we participate in this programme and the more Newtown Stakeholders get involved with us, that we will be able to turn Newtown around as far as its cleanliness is concerned.

There is still a long way to go, but as they say “bietjie, bietjie maak meer” which ties in perfectly with our area based development mandate, and what better way than to start in own backyard.

Again colleagues, thank you for participating and living up to the JDA’s slogan - “Building a better City” and thank you to the Marketing and Communications Team for making all the necessary arrangements.
