LETTER TO THE EDITOR FROM CLLR. GEORGE HENDERSON:
Our beautiful town, Uvongo, has been selected as a KZN finalist in DSTV’s Kyknet Kwela “DORP VAN DIE JAAR” competition along with Newcastle and Cathkin Peak. Kwela was on DSTV channel 144 on Sunday night and can be viewed during many repeats in the coming week.
Therese Bam, from Kyknet, contacted me last week to inform me of our achievement and to request photos of our beaches and area. Unfortunately the ocean was chocolate brown from the recent rains, but a big thank you to our local photographers Justin Klusener, Wessel Strydom, Marcelline Simonotti-Bircher and Barry Smit who saved the day and a lovely portfolio was sent off to Kyknet.
What we all need to do now is to vote for Uvongo by sending an sms to 33157 with Uvongo as the message. Up to 30 messages can be send from one number. The closing date for voting is this Friday 8 March 2019 at 12h00. The KZN winner will be announced on Sunday 10 March 2019 on Kwela, DSTV Channel 144.
Please share this message far and wide on all your social media platforms as this free marketing will not only benefit Uvongo, but the whole of the South Coast. Let’s get voting and win this thing.
