PEEING in public in eThekwini, KZN can lead to two years in jail or a fine of up to R40 000 from tomorrow.

This is due to a new public nuisance by-law the municipality has introduced.

Municipal spokeswoman Tozi Mthethwa toldDaily Sun that training of officials to enforce the by-law had been under way for some months.

The municipality said any person convicted of an offence under the by-law could be fined up to R40 000, go to jail for up to two years or be both fined and imprisoned.

Mthethwa said magistrates and prosecutors had undertaken to work hard to ensure the by-laws are enforced.
