Durban - Councillors in charge of wards north of the city, have been inundated with complaints following the placement of statues alongside the M4 Ruth First Highway.
Pete Graham, Ward 110 councillor, said he and two other councillors who have charge in wards in Durban North, have received complaints from residents.
In the lead up to the ANC Manifesto taking place at the Moses Mabhida Stadium this weekend, statues of past presidents have been placed alongside the highway.
Graham said there has been a significant traffic build up since the statues were placed more than a week ago.
“Some people thinking it is a road block due to slowing traffic and have been seen to be reversing on the M4 to take the Swapo Road offramp,” he said.
