KwaZulu-Natal MEC for Human Settlement and Public Works Jomo Sibiya addressing ward 29 residents regarding the damage that was caused by a storm in Msunduzi and Umngeni.

The KwaZulu-Natal Department of Human Settlements and Public Works has rejected allegations of political bias in its storm relief response in Msunduzi.

This comes after the DA caucus in Msunduzi Ross Strachan accused the department of only assisting communities in ANC-governed wards.

In a statement, Strachan said the department only visited ANC-run wards and the funding being allocated for storm relief seems to also be within those areas, as per the campaign notice run by the department.
