The IFP has received shocking news that about 4 employees of eThekwini Municipality blew up electricity transformers at Nsizwakazi near Klaarwater township in Durban yesterday evening.
According to the report we received from one resident, Mr. Sipho Shange, who claims to have witnessed the incident, their area had power and there was no problem with electricity. However, at dusk, four eThekwini Municipality vehicles arrived and drove to the transformers at the corner of Intake and Demat Roads at Nsizwakazi. They were driving 3 Toyota Hilux bakkies (NDM 18374; NDM 12241 and NDM 18054) and a Toyota Hino Truck. Soon thereafter when they were there, the transformers went up in flames and whole area suddenly experienced power failure. The nearby Dassenhoek experienced the same explosion and power failure as well.
The IFP condemns such criminality, if indeed it occurred, regardless of who did it. We call on eThekwini Municipality to quickly institute an investigation into these allegations. Likewise, we call on the South African Police Services to get involved in investigating these very serious allegations.
