Mpisane to meet uMlazi residents

Durban - Controversial businessman S’bu Mpisane arranged to meet uMlazi residents on Monday to discuss their concerns, which have led to their holding up work on a housing project.

Residents drove workers off the construction site on Friday, alleging that an official had demanded sexual favours from a young woman, offering her work on the project in return, and that people from outside Umlazi had been employed instead of locals for the project.

There were also claims that local councillor Amon Dladla had attended a community meeting last month with a hit man. Dladla denied the claims.

Mpisane’s firm has a municipal contract to build homes in the Umlazi B10 project.

Gwajo Hadebe, a spokesman for residents, said if Dladla was not at the meeting “he will be in trouble with the community”. – Daily News
