Runners relishing South Coast Ultra on Sunday


The sixth hosting of the South Coast Ultra, previously known as the Hibiscus Challenge, will be held at the Ugu Sports and Leisure Centre on Sunday.

    We have been without water for one week at Ramsgate and you have not made a comment on the issue.
    Trying to access one of the Call Center desks at Ugu Municipality Water division, was a waste of time. Telephones go unanswered. When one eventually gets answered, the information is incorrect.

    How can we expect to receive this type of service without having to say nasty comments about öur”municipality.” We have not been able to find comment on the issue. We are aware of the problem experienced due to the heavy rain, but do your job as a manager and notify the users.
    As rate payers we expect better service for our “Buck’. What the Ugu municipality are good at is to strike for increase in wages without consequences to the work ethic expected for the current wages they earn.(Here we hear them saying the salary is not sufficient)
    They should consider improving their work ethic and users will accept the higher increases more easily,

    But in general, the notification of what to expect in the supply of water to various areas was very poor and this falls directly on the management. (The ones who do not have telephones)
