- A community group in Gauteng called Dare to Love got together to clean up the streets instead of waiting on the municipality
- The streets were left littered after recent strike action
- Mzansi social media users were impressed by the noble act of service
After the municipal strikes in Gauteng recently, a group decided to get together and clean up the resulting mess.
The group Dare To Love took to the streets to pick up the litter. They shared photos of the initiative on social media and left many Gauteng residents impressed.
The post was captioned:
"After the municipal strikes this past week, we decided to head into city centre and go clean the mess that was made. It's easy, to love is to serve."
Facebook user Errol Pepping said:
"This encourages me to be part of something greater. Please inform us of other community initiatives so that we can lend a hand. PROUDLY SA."
While Lorraine King said:
"And I am so immensely proud of you guys!!! You are the core of our existence... our togetherness will be our strength. Never give up!"
Another social media user was not impressed with the striking workers who caused the mess, saying:
"The strikers should be fired and not get their jobs back."
To which the group's account responded:
"Its not our duty to judge, their employers need to make those decisions. It's our duty to help where we can, when we can, and who we can"
