Tensions were high as Nkululeko residents took it to the streets as they had had enough

Tensions were high on Monday when the Nkululeko residents had enough of the municipality and took to the streets to have their voices heard.The residents who are from the Northdale's informal settlement protested against the Msunduzi Municipality that is reported to have failed to fulfill a certain request.

A request had reportedly been given to the Municipality to fix a trench which had been left unattended. Regina Road as a result was blocked using burning tyres and broken glasses as a way of expressing rage over the failure by the Municipality. The trench is reported to have been dug two months ago but left unattended by the Municipality afterwards .

It is a danger for the residents, especially at night as there is a possibility that they can accidentally fall into the trench. The residents also reportedly said that the trench was a danger especially when it rained.The municipality needs to complete its work on the trench as children may fall inside when it rains.
