B+B slips away

2008-06-20 00:00

The main building of Ocean Hideaway guesthouse at Amanzimtoti was condemned yesterday. The operation has been closed, leaving eight people without jobs.

Said Michelle King-Page, a friend of the owner (who is currently in Kuwait): “We have no water and no sewerage. Only one person in this road has not been told to vacate their property.”

She said a river of water ran down Ipahla Road when stormwater drains overflowed, carving out a five-metre gorge.

She said the damage was due to irregularities at a nearby construction site and added that the municipality has done nothing, despite being aware of the problems. eThekwini municipal manager Dr Michael Sutcliffe, who is apparently aware of the problem, could not be reached.
