Election Day 2009

On 22 April, South Africans turned up at voting stations across the country in their millions. The voting station that used to be on the corner of Helios and Rubenstein in Moreleta Park, was moved to Rademeyers this year, presenting the Friends of Moreleta Kloof with a golden opportunity to make area residents aware of the Kloof. Rademeyers Restaurant also made a family day out of it, with jumping castles, food and drinks on sale and live entertainment.

It is almost shocking to see how little people know of this beautiful reserve that is right under their noses. People drive past it on their way to work every day without even knowing noticing the zebras standing next to the road.

The FMK, together with Tshwane Nature Conservation and The Green Market put up a stand at the exit of the voting station showcasing the Kloof and sustainable living. A snake show was held to teach kids to not be afraid of snakes and to respect them and the important role they play in nature. All in all the day was a huge success with plenty of interest shown in the Kloof.
