DA welcomes opening of KwaDukuza Mall

2018-10-17 06:02

THE long awaited KwaDukuza Mall opened despite all the controversy and hype.

The DA welcomes the opening of the KwaDukuza Mall. The mall project has created many opportunities for local labour, sub-contractors, local suppliers and most importantly jobs for the youth. With a high level of unemployment staggering over 27% we are sitting on a time bomb.

The DA will always support development and job creation. [Through] our own interaction with individuals and community there is overwhelming support for the mall despite concerns on compliance issues.

The DA supports the rule of law including by-laws of the municipality. If there are challenges during the construction phase they must be dealt with speedily by intervention and correction. Co-operation from the municipality and developer is of utmost importance. The municipality will apply its mind when issuing occupational certificate with or without conditions.

Furthermore the project will create direct and indirect jobs especially with franchise stores. For every visitor the KwaDukuza Mall must become a hub, must buy and see.

The excitement and experience of shopping at the new mall was eagerly awaited. Thousands of people have flocked in and taken advantage of the opening offers.

Millions will also flow into the coffers of KwaDukuza and iLembe Municipality through municipal services rendered. The DA remains optimistic and believe the storm will pass and people will get on with their lives.
