A new committee of the Kouga Moral Regeneration Movement (MRM) was elected at a meeting held at the Humansdorp Country Club last week.

Invited were community stakeholders, government departments and municipal leadership.

Speaking at the event on Thursday, Kouga Speaker Horatio Hendricks said the forum was part of the national initiative which was a brainchild of former president Nelson Mandela.

“While there were strides to rebuild the country physically, there was also a great need to ensure that there was restoration of good value systems of humanity. Our youth will be leaders tomorrow and we need to decide what kind of value systems we would like to see them follow,” he said.

Sarah Baartman District MRM chairperson Bright Ndzima said the movement was looking for volunteers who would like to see change for the better in the moral standing of their communities.

“We need men and women who understand the true meaning of words such as honesty and integrity, and who have respect for the rights of others,” he said.

Ndzima said the country came from a past that stripped certain groups of people of their dignity. This came with the erosion of certain fundamental values as the country was basically in a war situation. It was the work of all concerned groups and citizens to come up with plans on how this lost morality could be regained, he said.

Outgoing chairperson of the Kouga MRM, Rev Siyabonga Tambo, said people needed to understand that there was no material gain for those serving in the movement, but that inspiration came from one’s own sense of obligation to social reform.

“We have a responsibility not to fold our arms while we are witnesses to moral degeneration. We need to be torchbearers and light the way to a society that is morally stronger than we currently have,” said Tambo.

The Moral Regeneration Movement is a civil structure which consists of members, serving on voluntary basis, from different community sectors.

Its term is equal to that of a municipal council, which is five years.

The members of the new structure are Lien Poggenpoel, Mphumzi Ndaku, Elvina Felix, Thanduxolo Buka, Liezel Stuurman, Paula Sibeno, Mark Booysen, Nandipha Mangele, Vuyani Zana and Siyabonga Tambo.

In a municipality the MRM resides with the Office of the Speaker. To learn more residents can contact the office on 042 200 2107.
