MAYORAL STATEMENT ON RIOTS

The Mayor is deeply concerned about the events in Mossel Bay over the past few days and also the safety of the town’s residents.

It is understand that the main source of conflict is a notice which was issued regarding illegal electrical connections, mainly in Thembalihle, Mfuleni and Sijaji Streets in KwaNonqaba.  The Municipality is very worried about the safety hazards posed by these connections, particularly for children where these connections are laid over public roads.

However, for humanitarian reasons the Mayor has undertaken to postpone any disconnections until talks have been held with the leaders of the affected communities.

The Mayor reiterates her commitment which she made on Monday, 11 August, to the protestors to meet with their leaders regarding their issues.  The Mayor is prepared to commence with these talks as soon as possible, preferably within the next two days.

An appeal is made to the protestors to end their actions so that service delivery can return to normal.
