The community of Wentworth participated in a peace tournament as part of the peace pledge against violence.  The successful soccer tournament was held at the Ogle Road Soccer Grounds, recently.

Not dampened by the weather, the community turned up in their countless numbers to pledge their support for peace and partake in the joyous celebration. The day was declared a day of freedom and the tournament was supported by various soccer clubs in and around the Wentworth area.  The members of the community were treated to a lunch and refreshments were provided throughout the day.

The tournament had spurred other initiatives within the community with regards to the future of the youth, education and job creation being of importance. The event was organised by a peace committee and various other stakeholders from within the community who included, Michael Koster, Anwar Khan, Neil Axford, Mervin Damos, Aubrey Snyman , Colonel Van Zyl of the South African Police Services, Pastor Thakalani and MCCP pastors.

Eric Appelgren of the eThekwini Municipality graced the occasion and also pledged his continuous support and committed to their pledge. The organisers would like to extend their sincerest appreciation to every individual who contributed to making this a memorable and historical moment for many.
