PRESS RELEASE BY UGU DISTRICT MUNICIPALITY:
Another vehicle belonging to the water operations of the municipality has been burned down during the early hours of this morning at Umzinto and the extent of the damage is still being evaluated.
This vehicle was assigned to our standby technician in Parkrynie and this occurrence follows a series of threats and intimidation under which the municipality is currently rendering its services. This will further compromise the municipality’s ability to render services to areas under Umdoni and Umzumbe local municipalities.
The municipality is currently exploring available options to provide security to our employees and resources while providing service under this volatile environment. A call is made to all affected residents who might have information regarding this incident to report to the law enforcement agencies.
