Angry business people stormed the eThekwini municipal offices last week, demanding to be paid their money. Metro police and cops had to be called to the offices at Shell House in Durban to try and calm the situation.
The business people said they have been messed around. They said they got tenders from the municipality to install container toilets and fix the old ones in different parts in the city.
About 320 business people are involved. They submitted invoices in December but have not been paid. Fine Wealth Trading’s Thabani Simelane, from Umlazi T section, said: “We went to the water department and they said money was coming, but we’re never paid.”
Zanele Tele from KwaMancinza said she and a group of women who run the Ginqitshe operation submitted an invoice in December.
Municipal spokesman Msawakhe Mayisela said: “The business people should follow the right channels and not intimidate staff members.”
Mayisela said they will get their money tomorrow.
