The Pietermaritzburg and Midlands Chamber of Business (PMCB) has alerted its members to plans by Msunduzi to impound trucks delivering goods to invaded areas.

Chamber CEO Melanie Veness issued the warning on Monday. It comes after The Witness reported that the municipality would impound vehicles delivering goods to areas that had been invaded. This is an attempt to curb the invasion of land in Pietermaritzburg.

In the warning, Veness said while this included the Napierville area, it would not be limited to that area. She further warned that the building supplies would also be impounded.
