IFP eThekwini member of the Executive of the eThekwini Municipality, Cllr Mdu Nkosi, today calls on the eThekwini Municipality to urgently send the Waterkan truck so people can be able to have water access today, after hearing that yesterday water of the residents in Waterloo was cut off without notice.
“We as the IFP feel that these people were betrayed and failed by their own ANC councillor who was not aware of the matter in his ward, and sounded as though he did not even care when the residents reported the water cut off to him,” said Cllr Nkosi.
“How can a ward Cllr not know about the issues that are affecting his community?
“But all of this does not amaze us because the ANC in eThekwini have failed its people. It’s also disgusting that community members reported that when members of community contact him he just says: ‘ I’m away, I can’t do anything about it’, and refers them to his Office phone which is not being answered,” continued Cllr Nkosi.
In conclusion, the IFP demands the eThekwini Municipality to urgently send the Waterkan truck so people can be able to have water access today while the issue is being investigated, because the Municipality cannot just cut off the service without following due process.
“Residents must first be informed in writing about the intention to disconnect the services due. What happened in Waterloo yesterday, is not acceptable. How will the people function on a daily basis without water?” continued Cllr Nkosi.
