Neglect costs millions

2013-12-02 00:00

AN incomplete multimillion-rand multi­purpose centre will in all likelihood have the Msunduzi Municipality raiding the pockets of ratepayers for close to R5 million needed to salvage it after the centre was left at the mercy of vagrants and thieves.

Two years ago, The Witness exposed the neglected and vandalised state of the unused centre. The municipality at the time undertook to restore and guard it. In 2011, the municipality claimed the contractor left the site of his own accord and the legal division was looking at a breach of contract. No new contractor has been appointed since. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
