Ramoremi Mosuwe is 68-years-old and a retired cop. He dedicates a lot of his time to keeping Ga-Rankuwa in Tshwane clean. He wakes up in the early morning hours to start cleaning local taverns and streets.
Ramoremi Mosuwe wakes up at 4 am so he can start cleaning around the local shebeens and then moves on to the streets.
The 68-year-old from unit 17 in Ga-Rankuwa, Tshwane says he wanted to make a difference in his community so he started recycling, according to The Daily Sun.
Ramoremi is a retired cop and it looks like he still takes serving his country and people very seriously.
Ramoremi collects boxes and bottles while he cleans up, walking with his trusty wheelbarrow.
He gets up very early so he can have his kasi clean by the time people start heading into the streets to go to work and school.
I wake up at 4 am and clean local taverns. From there I clean the streets.
He gets up even earlier over weekends because there's more of a mess.
People drink a lot on weekends and throw bottles on the road and pavements. I have to make sure the road is clean in the morning.
The retired cop says he's not in it to see what he can gain financially.
I get cash from handing in the empty bottles but that’s not the reason I do it. I like to help people clean their yards and taverns.
Briefly.co.za gathered that this isn't the first time that Ramoremi makes the news for his dedication to keeping his kasi clean.
In 2016, The Daily Sun reported that Ramoremi doesn’t want to sit at home.
When I was a cop I was always strict about cleanliness, and that will never change.
This man is one of the many unsung heroes in South Africa who deserves to be applauded for their selflessness.
