March for Better Roads. On Thursday, the 27th of July, frustrated community members from Emahlathini marched into town to deliver a memorandum to the Local Mkhondo Municipality’s Department of Public Works.

The residents are dissatisfied with the state of the roads and they want answers as to when the municipality will attend to their requirements. Previously, the Excelsior News reported on this specific road and it was mentioned that workers from the municipality have been seen where they started to work on the road, but it was left unfinished.

This road mainly gets used by heavy motor vehicles travelling to and from the Emahlathini Border Post and it causes severe damage to the road. For normal vehicle motorists, this road is a danger zone as one has to dodge for potholes as far as the eye can see.

The march commenced on the Emahlathini road where the participants gathered and danced their way down Church Street. They ended at the Department of Public Works where they handed over a memorandum with all their requirements and asked for urgent answers thereto.

At the time of publication, the Department of Public Works could not be reached but further information pertaining to the memorandum will be published at a later stage.
