THE uMzinyathi District Municipality is a district in KwaZulu-Natal that, for the past couple of years, has been severely affected by the drought. 

“Water tankers are expected to serve the people of uMzinyathi without any political interference,” said uMzinyathi District Mayor Petros Ngubane as he handed over eight new water tankers on 7 August in Dundee.

Mayor Ngubane stated: “I am proud to introduce these water tankers to Amakhosi and uMzinyathi citizens. These trucks must be handled with care and allocated accordingly. People in all areas must be treated equally, and served with dignity.”   

The drought has affected residents in the more remote rural areas even more as many do not have access to potable water.
