08 March 2013

ANGRY Timothy Valley community leaders took over the Pleinhuis office of Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality human settlements portfolio committee chairman Fikile Desi yesterday and called for him to be axed.

About 30 fuming community leaders, together with ward 29 DA councillor Trevor Louw, invaded Desi’s office, seeking answers on when their “leaking and falling apart” RDP houses would be fixed.

They claim Human Settlements MEC Helen Sauls-August had promised them their houses would be fixed when she visited the area last year.

After Desi’s personal assistant, Salma Abrahams, had promised the community leaders that Desi would leave a meeting he was attending in Uitenhage and come to address them between 11am and 11.30am, he switched his phone off and failed to turn up.
