We have noticed media speculations and stampede to break or scoop each other on uMsunduzi. We have noted that as media fall over each other in this stampede of being the “first ones”, their reports have no sources and no reports to back their articulations.
As Cogta, should it come to our attention that a decision has been taken on any municipality in the province, we always take the public into confidence and make official pronouncements. We are not going to deviate from this tradition.
For now we refuse to be drawn into authenticating speculations and reports from faceless sources. We ask the media to allow us space to work. In case of new developments we will invite and inform the media and the public accordingly.
We will not be commenting beyond this.
