Rehabilitate Mobeni Flats – Councillor
Bongani Mamba who is the Councillor of Ward Three, a ward which Mobeni Flats falls under has called for government to rehabilitate the property.
The clearly sorrowful Mamba said an incident such as this happened in 2013. He said some of the damaged flats were also affected in 2013.
The councillor then questioned the credibility of those who fixed up the flats in 2013.
“The National Housing Board under the ministry of housing and urban development is making lot of money from these flats so it should not be a problem to rehabilitate the property,” Mamba said.
He went on to note that tenants should be valued for their monies they pay as rent. He raised the importance of fixing problems even before they occur.
He went on state that people on medication have been affected as their medicines were spoiled by the rain. He also passed his concern about school children text books that may have been destroyed by the flooding.
He wondered what the children were going to use for studying.
The councillor praised the Deputy Prime Minister Paul Dlamini for coming to see for himself the damages caused by the storm.
