On behalf of South Coast residents who were supplied with water from private companies and other benefactors, I express a heartfelt thank you.
Our budgets cannot be stretched for the extra outlay and it must be noted that Ugu contributed not one drop of water.

Ugu employees intimidated drivers from companies providing the water and vehicles were vandalised.
Those employees who vandalised the water system should be arrested and imprisoned and Ugu must dismiss the thugs.
Ugu should be managed by staff who are qualified, dedicated and capable.
I recommend that householders who were deprived of basic water rights (which infringes on international health laws) deduct the basic water charges from invoices for the period.
Lack of water and sewerage can result in cholera outbreaks.
