AMANZIMTOTI’S surrounding areas has been without water and electricity for four days after a heavy downpour of rain and then floods.
On Thursday, 28 July a group of people from KwaMakhuta and surrounds participated in a service delivery protest in front of the water and electricity depot in Wanda Cele Road (formerly Old Main Road).


“The officials were out and about even in the rainy weather, and as a result, only 430 of the above faults have been outstanding for more than 24 hours,” said head of communications, Tozi Mthethwa.

The Toti councillor addressed protesters and­ convinced them to disperse peacefully and let the municipal vehicles through.

Residents are encouraged to report faults to the electricity contact centre on 080 13 13111, SMS 083 700 0819 or email custocare@elec.durban.gov.za
