Vandals target cemetery

Cemetary Vandals

The Muslim section of the cemetery on the corner of Church Street and Gerhard Böhmer Lane is always kept neat and clean by members of the community but, unfortunately, their efforts to maintain it are being made difficult by vandals and thieves.

A few weeks ago, a member of the community informed the Excelsior News that all of the copper taps in the cemetery had been stolen as well as some of the pipes underground. The vandals caused extensive damage to the property and will most likely not be held liable for the destruction.

One good thing did come from the situation. After the vandalism was reported, the Mkhondo Local Municipality replaced the taps and repaired the broken pipes. That’s good service delivery!

Thank you to the residents who go through so much effort to keep the cemetery neat and clean. It is appreciated.
