Our nation was built on principals such as Ubuntu (which refers to community) and Masakhane (stand together). These principals indicate that our strength lies in our citizens. A programme such as Kleinmond Street Watch, which mobilises the community and empowers its citizens, is therefore manifest of the spirit of our nation.
It is the spirit which has inspired our municipal values which state “We Care; We Serve; We Belong”. I am proud to say that these are values the Kleinmond Street Watch has adopted and operate by.
Its members truly care about their community and neighbours; serve diligently and selflessly while embodying a spirit of community and citizenship we hope can be adopted in the whole of the Overstrand.
I therefore have no hesitation in wholeheartedly endorsing this well organised and well established community safety programme and its service to the residents of Kleinmond.
Executive Mayor: Overstrand
