Excellent service from the Mkhondo Municipality

When a blue Monday turns into a lovely day … On Sunday, 26 March, I discovered an overflowing drain in our yard, due to some or other blockage.

I decided to wait, however, till Monday morning before trying to address the problem as it was, after all, Sunday. I therefore phoned the emergency number at the Mkhondo Municipality early on Monday morning, at about 07:35 and a very friendly Jimson Mdluli told me that they would “sort the problem” for me.

A mere 10 minutes later, two very friendly and helpful men, Eric Masuku and Themba Sithebe arrived and immediately started working on the drain. Nothing deterred them from doing a thorough but quick job. They had to remove stuff for a fence which had been stacked away from the elements in order to properly reach the area. All the planks and poles were properly repacked after the job had been completed and the area was left neat and in order.

The blockage was worse than anticipated and appeared to be somewhere along the line between two drains but they, nevertheless, had the job completed and were on their way again by 08:15 – less than 45 minutes after my initial phone call. Thank you for such excellent service! You definitely made our Monday non-blue
