Inkandla strikes gets ugly as the Mobile Clinic was set on firešŸ”„

Nkandla Local Municipality mayor Mbhekiseni Biyela said the protests were sparked by lack of progress in fixing the roads, which are littered with potholes despite former Transport MEC Peggy Nkonyeni pledging more than R2 billion for the repairs in 2021.

In 2021 MEC Nkonyeni said they had set aside R2.4bn to fix all damaged roads in Nkandla. Now the department is sending us documents saying they will assist us, but if you look at that document it does not say anything.

“Before the strike began on Monday, Transport HoD Simphiwe Nkosi arrived but Transport MEC Hlomuka did not arrive, so the residents wanted Hlomuka, not Nkosi,” Biyela said.

"He said the protests were disruptive to the community as people could not go to clinics, and some schools might not open today.
