Protest: angry locals march on city hall

2011-04-08 00:00

RESIDENTS from Imbali Stage 3, Unit J and Unit C, marched to the City Hall yesterday to hand over a memorandum of grievances to the Msunduzi Municipality. The residents, who shouted “Down with the municipality” wanted, amongst other things, the council to reduce what they called “excessive electricity and water bills”. One placard read “We demand original demarcation unit 3, C & J, R500 000 water billing, Msunduzi Municipality is corrupt”. The protesters also criticised councillors, saying that before they were elected they were thin and once in office they became “fat cats” who did not deliver any services to their communities.
