Attention, please!

The Excelsior Newspaper had received so many complaints in the past regarding storm-water drains all over town which are in a terrible condition.

It was reported in numerous editions before but, nothing actually gets done about it. Drains are clogged with rubble, shattered, and have no covers on. This is a dangerous state of affairs. Does any entity actually have money lying around to compensate a person who might get severely injured because of a broken stormwater drain?

After another complaint during the week, reporters went out to see for themselves. In only 15 minutes ten storm-water drains were seen that looked dilapidated and are unable to serve their purpose any longer.

We urge the Mkhondo Local Municipality to take this seriously and start with repairs.
