Deputy President Paul Mashatile is visiting the eThekwini Municipality in KwaZulu-Natal today, to address challenges and discuss solutions with local leadership.

Ahead of Friday’s visit, the Presidency said the Deputy President is undertaking the outreach programme as part of his delegated responsibility to intervene in service delivery hotspots across municipalities. 

The Deputy President will also visit water and sanitation sites in Durban and surrounds to provide feedback to communities on government’s interventions to resolve the water and sanitation challenges experienced in the municipality.

This follows President Cyril Ramaphosa’s mandate to the Deputy President to head the Water Task Team at the Cabinet level, which is aimed at addressing water challenges in the country.  

The country’s second-in-command is also expected to make a stop at the Northern Wastewater Treatment Works, Adams K5 and K6 Water Reservoir, and Mpumalanga Stadium in Hammarsdale. –
