Speaking to the Phoenix Sun, Samukelo Nkosi, Regional Corporate Social Investment specialist, revealed his disgust over the waste that washed on the beach front and river banks.
“It is unacceptable that the waste ended up in the wrong places, in our oceans and communities that we work and live in. The emergency clean up formed as part of the CCBSA’s commitment to creating a waste free South Africa,” Nkosi said.
Adhering to the National Good Green Deeds Programme, launched by President Cyril Ramaphosa, the CCBSA also honoured it’s commitment in clean up South Africa.
