Mnambithi Municipality Must Be Blamed for Poor Service Delivery

08 July 2014.


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 KaMadlopha-Mthethwa.


"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 concluded.
