Durban has aspirations to be a great city and we are taking steps towards making this a reality. Much work has already been done to clean up the inner City by hardworking officials since the on-going intervention began on 14 August. I thank them for their dedication in achieving our vision of making eThekwini Africa’s most caring and liveable City by 2030. All operational departments dedicated four hours daily for three weeks to jointly clean and make the City safe and attractive to all.

Furthermore, all security clusters have worked tirelessly to ensure that cleaned areas are sustained until the City appoints a dedicated team to take full responsibility of CBD urban management. The Supply Chain Management process is underway to ensure that due processes are followed and to ensure the team is operating soon. 

The official launch of the radical CBD clean-up and safety programme was on 15 September where the plan to rejuvenate the inner City was officially unveiled to stakeholders including business. The plan outlined strategies and interventions the City has in place to revive the inner City. Improving the CBD is of vital importance as it will attract further investment to the City and create more employment. We have availed additional resources to sustain the Radical Durban CBD Clean-up and Safety Programme and other initiatives to improve the inner City over the next three years.

The programme aims to address cleanliness and safety related issued which includes crime and grime, illegal trading and derelict buildings. Since the first phase was implemented, the programme has already started to show a remarkable impact to ensure safety and cleanliness around the CBD.
