THE eThekwini Municipality has announced that it is looking into a matter of salmonella making people sick and they ask community members to stay calm while they are looking into the situation.

Following 20 people who were admitted to hospital showing similar signs of having eaten what contains salmonella, eThekwini spokesperson Musawakhe Mayisela confirmed that the admitted people were indeed affected by salmonella.
