The IFP was shocked to discover the squalid and inhumane conditions in which the residents of eMathinini in Ward 101 in Cato Crest go about their daily lives. This, the IFP discovered when they visited the area, to engage the residents about their living conditions.
“Frankly speaking, residents of eMathinini live in squalid and ghetto-like conditions. We discovered that out of four containers meant to be toilets and bathrooms, only one is utilised – by both men and women. The others are beyond repair. And the one in use is filthy, with human waste littered all over the floor. In addition, garbage is all over, which clearly indicates that no one collects it,” said Joshua Mazibuko, IFP MPL, who was part of the delegation.
“As IFP, we take this as a challenge, and we accept it. We will leave no stone unturned to ensure that the people of Cato Crest, Mayville and all such areas have their dignity restored and realise true liberation.”
