A large mural has appeared on the corner of Carr and Ntemi Piliso streets – the first in the City's new public art programme.

The 17m by 5m colourful Aids mural, done by artists Tshepo Mofokeng and Mandla Manana, depicts township houses and city skyscrapers, below a starry sky, with red ribbons tied around the buildings reading: Condomise; Prevention is better than [cure]; Keep the promise – accountability; Abstain; and Stop the stigma against HIV/Aids.

Die JHC is verlede Donderdagaand bekroon met ’n spesiale toekenning vir maatskaplike verantwoordelikheid by die Groter Johannesburgse Sakekamer se onderneming van die jaar- prysuitdelingsfunksie.

Dié maatskappy verskaf maatskaplike behuising in die middestad van Johannesburg waar hulle sowat 22 geboue bestuur.
