Over 40 families in Lamontville, south of Durban, have been left with no homes after they were demolished by the eThekwini municipality as part of the R293 rectification programme.
KwaZulu-Natal Premier, Sihle Zikalala and Health MEC, Nomagugu Simelane-Zulu, have officially opened the Royal Showgrounds field hospital earmarked for COVID-19 in Pietermaritzburg.
eThekwini and Ilembe continue to be coronavirus (COVID-19) hotspots in KwaZulu-Natal. KwaZulu-Natal Premier Sihle Zikalala revealed this during a media briefing on the province’s readiness to reopen schools.
The KwaZulu-Natal Health MEC Nomagugu Simelane-Zulu says they are keeping a close eye on the movement of people in the eThekwini metro after Level 4 of the national lockdown came into effect on Friday.
The possible continuation of strict lockdown regulations for the eThekwini district announced by KwaZulu-Natal Premier will not mean a complete shut-down of business. This is according to KZN Premier Sihle Zikalala.
