Emfuleni residents rise against corruption

Emfuleni residents have had enough of being denied basic services. They blocked roads in the area on Thursday, accusing municipal leaders of corruption.

They’ve threatened to shut down the district until their grievances are heard. We have problems of sewerage, potholes and water,” said community leader Themba Mnisi.

“When the provincial government imposes interventions, they call on people suspended elsewhere for corruption in their municipalities,” he added.

Mnisi says they will shut down the municipality despite COVID-19, as they feel that the pandemic is being used as a scapegoat to their concerns not being addressed.

eNCA was unsuccessful in attempting to reach out to the mayor. The administrator explained that they’re aware of the service delivery issues and are looking into them.
