Re­port Mon­tigny Rangers to Ludzidzini Coun­cil

Observer on Saturday - - News -

Ag­grieved for­mer SAPPI Usutu em­ploy­ees have re­ported Mon­tigny In­vest­ments Rangers whom they have de­scribed as a thorn in their flesh to the Ludzidzini Coun­cil.

Speak­ing dur­ing the meet­ing on Tues­day the for­mer em­ploy­ees’ rep­re­sen­ta­tives dis­closed that they have since re­ported the mat­ter as they feel they are no longer free to meet and dis­cuss an is­sue that is as prob­lem to them with­out be­ing in­tim­i­dated by the Rangers at Bhunya.

“We re­ported the mat­ter as we are very con­cerned that in our own coun­try we can­not move freely as we are al­ways closely guarded by the rangers from Mon­tigny. They come here to record our meet­ings and we don’t know what to do any­more. Lest the is­sue reaches boil­ing point we de­cided that we re­port the mat­ter to the Coun­cil be­fore we take mat­ters into our own hands. The is­sue here is that no one knows any­more our next move and that is why the rangers al­ways come here to record our meet­ings take our pictures. We have a right to as­sem­ble here af­ter seek­ing per­mis­sion at the right­ful Mon­tigny of­fice and fur­ther from the po­lice. Who are they to come and record our meet­ings then?” asked the rep­re­sen­ta­tive with­out nec­es­sar­ily await­ing a re­sponse.

Another for­mer em­ployee bragged that it was them that con­structed the Bhunya Vil­lage some years ago and it was not right to then come and in­tim­i­date them at the very vil­lage.
