‘I don’t drive NPC1,’ mayor tells Exco

2014-10-24 00:00

“IT wasn’t me.”

Msunduzi Mayor Chris Ndlela yesterday told fellow executive committee (Exco) members yesterday that he was not in or near the official mayoral car NPC1 reportedly being driven recklessly on the N3 near Howick last Friday.

The mayor said while it was on record that he hardly read newspapers, he did read The Witness yesterday and was astounded to learn about the antics of NPC1. He said it was unfortunate publicity and queried why people who had issues did not phone and find out more before running to media houses.

“I don’t drive NPC1 and even in sheer madness would not attempt to drive it,” he said.

Fellow Exco member Bill Lambert said: “We did not for a moment think it was you.”
