The IFP believes that the Mnambithi
Municipality in KwaZulu Natal should take the blame for poor
service delivery which has resulted in water shortages at the
Department of Education offices in Ladysmith.
"Reports allege that it has been three months
now since the offices were closed due to water shortages but
nothing has happened to solve this crisis We need to know what the Department of
Education is doing to solve this problem. How are employees
expected to perform their allotted duties if there is no water,"
said IFP KZN Education, Mrs Thembeni KaMadlopha-Mthethwa, MPL.
"There is an urgent need to investigate this
complaint levelled against Mnambithi Municipality by the
community as they are forced to travel long distances to seek
educational help due to no service at eMnambithi. This is not
acceptable. Urgent intervention is necessary and someone must be
held accountable for this situation," continued
"The IFP calls on the KwaZulu Natal MEC for
Education, Peggy Nkonyeni and Mnambithi Municipality to urgently
come up with an amicable solution to solve this crisis," she
