Healthcare Frontline Workers Celebrated



The ZF Mgcawu District Municipality together with the Department of Health recently held an event in honour of the women who have been working tirelessly throughout the pandemic as frontline workers in Health.

The event was hosted on the closing of Women’s Month which is celebrated annually in August as a celebration and commemoration of the approximately 20 000 women who marched to the Union Buildings in 1956 to petition against the Apartheid pass laws that required South African’s to carry a passport that served to maintain segregation between blacks and whites.

The prestigious programme performed under strict COVID-19 protocols, to officially mark the conclusion of women’s month and celebrating the tireless efforts of the female frontline workers in Health. This occasion was also used to honour the 44 frontline workers in the province who passed away due to COVID-19 related complications.

In his opening remarks, the Executive Mayor of the ZF Mgcawu District Municipality emphasised that the occasion was to thank the female healthcare workers for their selfless efforts, dedication and contributions towards serving the nations. “Your hard work and selflessness do not go unnoticed. Keep up the good work, stay motivated even if it is under very challenging circumstances,” he said.

The event was held at the Tol-Speelman community centre in Upington. The dignitaries in attendance included the Provincial Health MEC, Mr Maruping Lekwene; the Executive Mayor of the ZF Mgcawu District Municipality Councillor Paulus Mgcera, the Speaker of the District Municipality Councillor Maureen Basson and Mayors from the Local Municipalities.
