The days following former President Jacob Zuma's arrest in early July have been days filled with ongoing chaos and uncertainty with regards to a way forward for the South African public. Amid the chaos has been extreme destruction of property by rioters. Parts of Durban, KwaZulu-Natal and Johannesburg, Gauteng saw the most damage, with the aftermath of the riots being visible on the city streets.
Through what is being called the "PAN AFRICA CLEAN UP CAMPAIGN", Pikitup, the official waste management service provider for the City of Johannesburg, The South African National Defence Force (SANDF), The South African Police Service (SAPS), and community members from Alexandra and Fourways have joined forces to start cleaning up the city.
Their motivation behind the cleanup has been to show how much they care for the city, as well as attempt to restore their communities back to normal in hopes of making a "#SaferJoburg".
