Let’s #CleanUpSA – Rebuilding Gauteng and KZN Communities Together

Today, ActionSA calls on all volunteers, supporters and members of the public to participate in clean-up efforts to healing communities across Gauteng and Kwa-Zulu Natal (KZN).  

This past week’s violence and looting has left many of our communities shaken.

We have witnessed despicable coordinated criminality that resulted in the destruction of property to the tune of billions of Rands, robbed many of their livelihoods, and caused deaths across the provinces. 

Regardless of where you live, your socio-economic background, or your race, we have all been affected. As peace-loving, law-abiding, freedom-loving South Africans, we have been terrorised by criminality that has sought to make us afraid and worked to tear us apart. 

But, we are a resilient and peace-loving people – working together, we can, and will, move past this trying time. That is why we encourage all South Africans to reclaim our neighbourhoods and streets by participating in the clean-up of affected communities. Already, civil society organisations, religious groups, clubs, businesses and communities are coming together to build back more connected, more caring, and safer communities than before. We would like to thank all these South Africans who have already done their part to save and reclaim our communities.

While our political leaders have failed us, the positive response to this crisis by so many residents demonstrates that when ordinary South Africans stand together, we can fix South Africa.

Over the coming days, ActionSA leaders and volunteers will be joining residents to assist in clean-ups of communities in –

While we all work to restore our communities, the government must make returning law and order to South Africa its number one priority. We need to act swiftly to arrest, prosecute, and sentence those known to have instigated the violence that gripped our country. 

We continue to call on all sectors of society to exercise calm, peace and cooperation during this time.

Let’s work together to rebuild our communities. Please remember to be safe and wear a mask. Let’s #CleanUpSAf.
