PORT ELIZABETH - Former Nelson Mandela Bay Mayor Athol Trollip on Monday embarked on door to door visits in Missionvale in Port Elizabeth’s northern areas.
Trollip visited residents to provide blankets, food and clothing after parts of the area were flooded when heavy rainfall hit at the weekend.
He said that while the rainfall brought huge relief to a drought stricken Nelson Nelson Mandela Bay, it also brought grief and misery to some residents.
“This specific Missionvale community has for years been subjected to the poor planning and implementation of this housing project.
"It is now incumbent on the legitimate NMB coalition government to address these infrastructural issues, which will be finalised over the next six months.”
