UMZIMKHULU VIEWPOINT BY MUNICIPAL MANAGER
Warm greetings to Umzimkhulu people
Recently we had to meet with the villagers of these following areas: Senti, Mnceba, Driefontein, Pholanyoni, and Rocky Mount. Mainly we were focussing on the electrification issues wherein the area is dark. We persistently talked to our people with vigilance because what they are raising is very important. Indeed, we concur with these communities that electricity is very important when you do not have electricity you can only blame the government. Though government has a responsibility to ensure that service delivery is being accelerated, there are things that we cannot resolve such as capacity because Eskom is the custodian of the electricity infrastructure. We had to calm down the community because Eskom has made a determination in terms of network planning infrastructure. Those areas that will not be affected, the municipality is on the process of securing the funding to assist in that regard.
