Oupa Mahlangu from Donkerhoek writes:
There is no way that any rural areas that I know of will ever be completely developed. At least not with the municipalities allowing all this mediocrity and vandalism.

Any new development and maintenance falling apart is proof of poor workmanship on the part of those hired to do the job and this also goes to prove the quality of material used. Redoing a project means that people who’ve been complaining about lack of service delivery will die without receiving anything.

The needs are roads, sanitation, water, electricity, proper settlement, sports facilities, clinics, proper schools, etc. The question here is: Why are local councils failing to develop necessities that people can easily access, instead of continuing to erect white elephants?

Municipalities are supposed to have planning departments. I would like to convince myself that such departments will do their research before splashing public money.

We need clarity here. Who’s failing us here in ward 2, Kungwini? What we see is the changing of councillors, mayors and senior municipal employees, without any changes.

I’m from Donkerhoek, under Kungwini Local Municipality. From 1997 to 2010 I have volunteered, trying by all means to help my community to reach proper service delivery, but nothing was delivered. We need our president’s attention. I have letters to prove that I did a lot to uplift my community, seeking help from both major political parties. Let a good Samaritan come to our rescue.
