Up the creek: no dredger in sight

2010-07-15 00:00

ALTHOUGH the multimillion- rand contract for the dredging of the Camps Drift canal has been cancelled, it will take some time until a new contractor is hired.

Acting executive manager for marketing and public relations Brian Zuma said the Msunduzi Municipality will not be appointing a new contractor any time soon because it is focusing on its turnaround strategy at the moment.

Asked whether the canal will be allowed to silt up until a new contractor is appointed, Zuma said: “The municipality will monitor the canal and the next dredging exercise will be instituted when the timing for that purpose is right.”
