Service delivery march against municipality

2014-01-23 00:00

RESIDENTS across Msunduzi from Greater Edendale to Northdale are joining together for a massive service delivery march tomorrow against the Msunduzi Municipality.

Issues they are protesting include the years of incorrect and exorbitant water billing in the greater Edendale area; the mess over meter reading; rates valuation; the recent tariff debacle and the municipality sweeping through various suburbs cutting off people’s pre-paid meters because of outstanding water bills.

The march is organised by the South African National Civic Organisation (Sanco), the Msunduzi Rates Forum (MRF) and organisations from the Greater Edendale area. On Monday night, an invitation was extended to the newly formed Msunduzi Action Forum. The march will start at Dales Park and end at the city hall by 2.30 pm. Those who cannot join the march can meet at the city hall where a memorandum will be handed over to the municipality.
