A home destroyed by the KZN floods.

The Congress of Traditional Leaders of South Africa (Contralesa) has made an impassioned plea to the government to ensure that only deserving people are awarded tenders in KwaZulu-Natal, following the recent devastating floods.

Contralesa president Chief Larmeck Mokoena says the recent floods in KwaZulu-Natal have exposed the government’s failure to provide proper infrastructure. He says this is because of awarding tenders to incompetent people.

“The painful experience or situation in KZN has exposed the poor infrastructure that has been built in our country of late. Some of the roads and buildings that are recently built have been washed away. Government must stop awarding tenders to people with no experience. We call upon our government to set up a team that will identify reputable and known experienced service providers that will assist in that situation in KZN.”
