25 years post-democracy, 37 days to presidential elections KwaZulu-Natal’s local authorities continue to dismally fail at basic service delivery to Langfontain and Congo area of Molweni, currently under the ANC rule by Councillor Simphiwe Mncube.
The Democratic Alliance (DA) oversight today led by PR Cllr Msomi ushers members of the media on a dweller’s day-to-day living conditions experience.
Although challenges varied from home to home, the escalation of problems from sinking structures, muddy and sloppy bursting faeces sites, informal and delipidated falling houses, pit latrine, angry and helpless residence remained real.
In an interview Mcube said, sinking homes are those illegally built without authorisation from the municipality whose sites were perhaps bought privately. He further said that the police station closure is untrue, clinic operational hours and municipal controlled. In the case of Noziphom Ngenge’s painfully desperate situation he was perplexed and stated that he will have to verify her claims because often residence are given material yet, do another apart from its intended collection. In closing he affirmed that not only was there a meeting held with the community last year but that one approaches soon, with his recommendations being that endangered dwellers be relocated to R293.
We will track progress and report further.
