Mavundla declares, "Right now, our security in Durban is expensive. We occasionally need to send out a plumber, and when we do, the plumber must be accompanied by a security guard. But occasionally, even in those circumstances, we still get robbed.
"We need to send a technician, and we need to send them with extra protection because they get robbed and then end up skipping service delivery," the technician said. When we started talking last night in Illovu, the community was blocking the road and complaining about the water, but what else did we discuss? We had plumbers, but they chased him away because they thought he was moving too slowly, according to Mavundla.
