KZN COGTA MEC HLOMUKA WANTS EXPLANATION ON VIDEO OF TRUCK DUMPING WATER NEAR PONGOLA

KZN MEC for Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs (Cogta) Sipho Hlomuka has called for answers following the circulation of a video on social media platforms which shows a water tanker being emptied of its contents on the side of the road in oPhongolo.

Hlomuka has requested the Zululand district municipality to explain this incident which comes at a time when the province is dealing with the after-effects of a gripping drought that has decimated water resources in the province and especially in the Zululand district.

Hlomuka is expecting a detailed report from the district which will detail the circumstances of this incident and the relevant sanctions that will be taken by the Water Service Authority should any wrongdoing emerges from the investigation.
