Upgrading of the Kwanobuhle Cemetry

www.MyPE.co.za: In
September 2008, The Executive Mayor, Councilor Nondumiso Maphazi
announced that the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality would pilot the
second phase of the Expanded Public Works Programme (EPWP) in two
cemetery upgrades. The cemeteries identified were the Kwa-Nobuhle and
Zwide Cemeteries. EPWP principles provide for labour intensive
construction methods in order to create jobs and alleviate poverty in
the residing areas.

The Kwa-Nobuble Cemetery upgrade is in its implementation phase which
includes the erection of palisade fencing and the building of vehicular
and pedestrian gates. Other work being carried out includes taking down
existing fencing, leveling the area along the fence, minor road works
at the entrance of the Cemetery and the training of workers and SMMEs
as required by the EPWP.

Speaking during a visit to the site, Public Works MEC, Pemmy Majodina
reiterated government’s commitment to addressing infrastructure
backlogs, accelerating service delivery and creating decent
jobs.’Through EPWP government is able to create jobs and also skill
people so that they can move on and work on other projects using the
skills they have acquired’, she said. She also pleaded with the
community to take ownership of their facilities and look after them.

The second phase of the Cemetery upgrade will include the building of
roads, leveling of graves, implementation of a grave identification
system, erection of a memorial tombstone as well as building an on-site
office. Phase three, which would be the last phase will involve the
beautification of the cemetery. The Cemetery Project currently employs
20 community members and its is envisaged that local people will be
used for its maintenance.
