ROAD BLOCKADE IN THE FORMER TRANSKEI

MEDIA STATEMENT ISSUED BY MALIZOLE DIKO
UDM NATIONAL SPOKESPERSON

It is embarrassing that taxi-operators have to block roads because of poor road conditions. 

This shows that despite the Government’s sweet tongue and much talked about “delivery” by Mbeki’s government, the living conditions have not changed.

The UDM calls on the Government to put money where its mouth is. Dullah Omar and Makhenkesi Stofile must start realising what the Country’s people, especially the poor, expect of them.

If the existing infrastructure is not maintained, it not only affects the daily functioning of the people who depend on these roads to make a living, it also has negative implications on the economic situation in the region.
