Everyone is asking: Does ‘Vusi’ work for Ugu?

Sugarbush Cutting is notorious for all the wrong reasons.

A SPECIAL feature on Carte Blanche last Sunday exposed the growing trend of looters targeting moving trucks on the N2 between KwaZulu-Natal and the Eastern Cape.

It was reported that from ‘Sugarbush Cutting’ on the N2 at Bhobhoyi, Port Shepstone, it had become a treacherous route. The Herald has also previously highlighted this.

Violent looters target moving trucks, ripping cargo off the back of the trailer and within minutes, make off with millions of rands worth of goods. The looting is costing the economy billions.

During an interview, a spotter whose name was given as ‘Vusi’ and wearing an Ugu District Municipality overall, explained how they go about looting.

Since the clip has been aired, many have taken to social media, claiming that ‘Vusi’ is an employee of Ugu District Municipality.

Municipality manager DD Naidoo said that it is of grave concern to Ugu District Municipality that the exposé revealed participants in this alleged unlawful activity wearing Ugu District Municipality uniforms.

“We have ascertained that those wearing a Ugu uniform in the Carte Blanche feature story are not employees of the municipality. We are however concerned that our uniforms, meant for the safety and protection of our employees, are being used to commit unlawful activity. We are, however, investigating this matter and will take the necessary remedial action,” he said.
