28 November 2017

The Ray Nkonyeni municipality will as of Wednesday, 29 November commence on a programme to offer some relief towards victims from various wards within the municipality that were severely affected by the recent storms.

This comes after the Ray Nkonyeni municipality, as part of the Ugu District, was hit by severe storms over a short period. The Premier of KwaZulu-Natal proceeded to declare it a disaster area, paving the way for the municipality to apply for relief from the provincial government. The South African Social Security Agency (SASSA) came on board by donating groceries and other necessary items.

The distribution of relief items will be done in cluster format, and will involve the municipal leadership, ward councilors and affected communities.
