Swift service

2016-09-28 06:00

I WISH to express my sincere thanks to the Msunduzi sanitation team, led by foreman, Sipho Nyawose.

On 2 September the sewer outside my house started overflowing at about 5.15 pm. I made a call to the call centre and reported it. About 10 minutes later, Nyawose called me to confirm my address and get directions. Half an hour later, the sanitation team was attending to the problem.

The blockage was cleared quickly and life was back to normal within 40 minutes. It was heartening to receive such efficient service.

The other departments in the municipality can learn from the sanitation team.

We have been taught that we need three meals a day in order to make it through the day and while most of us indulge in more than our fair share there is a large portion of South Africans who are living off barely enough to sustain them.
