THERE was a happy atmosphere as crowds gathered last Saturday at the opening ceremony of Mavundla Square to applaud President Jacob Zuma, KZN Premier Senzo Mchunu, Minister of Finance Nhlanhla Nene and many other VIPs, not forgetting the man who initiated Greytown’s first shopping mall, Mr P.G.

Highlights of the opening celebrations was the performance by the KZN Philharmonic Orchestra and the Three Tenors from Durban.

While VIPS attended a sit-down luncheon after the opening, the crowds enjoyed a free meal from KFC
