The Democratic Alliance has accused the outgoing administration in uMngeni of trying to destabilise the municipality.

“We can see that this is a co-ordinated effort to try and place uMngeni under administration and it is just not going to happen,” said Dean Macpherson, DA KwaZulu-Natal chairperson, during a media briefing on Wednesday.

His comments come on the back of the DA filing an urgent interdict against uMngeni’s acting municipal manager, Sandile Buthelezi.
