The aggressive invasion of alien plants currently proliferating vast parts of KwaZulu-Natal calls for consented efforts from all environmental partners and communities to join hands for the ultimate eradication of the species. This was the clarion call made by Nomusa Dube-Ncube, the KwaZulu-Natal MEC for Economic Development, Tourism and Environmental Affairs during the clearing of foreign species under the Alien Invasive Species Programme in Jozini: KwaJobe: uMkhanyakude District on Thursday 21st November 2019. With the Jozini area and the entire uMkhanyakude facing the scourge of invasive species Dube-Ncube has placed top priority in assisting the area to weed out the deadly species.
