Editorial comment

RECENTLY we have read about people and government planning to invest in the lower South Coast, and this is fabulous­ news.

We often hear people complain that “nothing ever happens here”, but this week we publish stories about a new technology hub and a new museum, which means that things will happen, but just in their own time or in African time as some may put it.

Our front-page story has left many people scratching their heads.

What is Umdoni Municipality up to now?

Well, according to a ward councillor and the environmental expert quoted in the front-page story, it seems the municipality itself doesn’t even know what it is doing.

It was with great sadness that we learnt of the death of Hopson Shezi, who was very successful in the property sector and was well known in the business circles.

We send our condolences to his loved ones and to the South Coast Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
