Mayor prevents Gift of the Givers from giving statement

NOT A WORD: Trucks from the Gift of the Givers in Grahamstown (Makhanda) delivered thousands of litres of potable water to Port Alfred on Monday morning but Mayor Khululwa Ncamiso had told them they must not speak to the media Picture: ROB KNOWLES

By now we should all be aware of the relief work performed by Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) Gift of the Givers who arrived with three trucks and thousands of litres of water to help alleviate the water problems in Ndlambe.

However, when Talk of the Town went to speak with Gift of the Givers’ Ali Sablay, water and sanitation supervisor Enoch Jobela reminded Sablay that Ndlambe mayor, Khululwa Ncamiso, had told him not to talk to the press.

Having failed to find the mayor to ask directly why this was the case, and to remind her of the right of residents to know what is happening in Port Alfred, an email was sent so she could address the matter.

In the meantime, water will be distributed in the previously identified drop-off points.
