Moses Khwene has spent the last 12 years picking up litter, weeding, planting flowers and beautifying Rivonia so the residents raised money to thank him.


Amy Harrison wanted to show some appreciation for Moses and his continued efforts to keep Rivonia beautiful. He has worked hard in the area for the last 12 years. Sadly he was the victim of a hijacking and lost his faithful wheels. His car was found but had been damaged.

Every Saturday morning, if you look carefully enough, you’ll find Moses picking up litter around the bus stops along Rivonia Road, scraping illegal stickers off poles and tidying up the garden beds along the road.

Monday to Friday, Moses beautifies the Sandspruit River in Rivonia, clearing the litter from the river, mowing the grass, planting beautiful flowers, all to bless the Rivonia community. And he’s done this for 12 years.

These years of hard work allowed Moses to finally pay off his car just recently, only to become a victim of crime on 2 June 2018.

Moses was stopped and hijacked by men impersonating the police on the N3. He spent the night alone in the bushes and finally found his way to the Kliprivier Police Station 12 hours later.

Amy decided to reach out and ask people within the community to help fix his car. The community came forward and raised the full 20k in a matter of days.

The police found Moses’ car thankfully, but the engine was run without oil after the hijackers hit the sump and the front bumper was damaged. Moses doesn’t deserve this. He does so much for our community.

Please show Moses that, just as he cleans up the mess of our community, that we can come alongside him and clean up this ‘mess’.

There were many donors involved including a Rivonia primary school and local Bistro. This contribution has been such a wonderful gift of appreciation for a man who has always put his hard work on display. Well done to all involved and to Moses for continuing to work hard within the community.
