If we you do not pay the bill it accumulates the following month, and that is why we always make sure that we pay,” said one community member.

The community say they have a number of problems in this area but they want the municipality to focus on the water issue because it is a priority. Msunduzi Municipality spokesperson Thobeka Mafumbatha said the municipality is aware of the constraints of potable water supply to the community of Vulindlela.

“We are working jointly with Umgeni Water to upgrade the entire Vulindlela system in the long term. In the short term, the municipality is trying to supply water to all communities but alternating supply where technically possible and augmenting [water supply] with the supply of hired and internal water tankers,”she said.

Mafumbatha said the municipality was not officially aware of tankers or tanker drivers that are selling water to customers, which she said is illegal.

“We appeal to any residents to come forward with proof so that necessary processes can be followed to ensure this gross misconduct stops,” she ended.
