Durban - Expanded Public Works Programme workers stormed City Hall for the second time this week to demand that their salaries be paid to them.
It was the second day in a row on Tuesday that EPWP members have made their way to the doors of City Hall. On Monday, they stormed an operations meeting that as they demanded to meet with city’s chief financial officer Krish Kumar, who had promised them that the matter would be addressed.
This morning the group of about 50 people were singing and shouting outside the hall. One of the protesters who asked not to be named because she was scared that she might be victimised said many of their insurance policies were in danger of lapsing.
“Our children have no food to eat, they go to school with nothing as there is no food to eat.” she said.
The mother of four said she has been working with EPWP for the past four years.
