Malunga criticises eThekwini Municipality handling of Glebelands matter

2 May 2019

Mayor Zandile failed to attend an on-site inspection of the troubled Glebelands Hostel in Umlazi.
Deputy Public Protector Kevin Malunga has lashed out at eThekwini Metro Mayor Zandile Gumede after her office failed to attend an on-site inspection of the troubled Glebelands Hostel in Umlazi this past Tuesday.
The hostel visit was meant to establish how much progress the municipality has made since meeting with the SA Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) and Malunga’s office on March 14.
Malunga says the municipality has failed to maintain the upkeep of the hostel and the hostel dwellers are living in inhumane conditions.
