City of Mbombela Municipal workers on Strike

Mbombela- The employees from different sectors such as garbage collection, electrical, community services and public works are complaining about the grading of their salaries after the amalgamation of the Umjindini and Mbombela municipalities, working conditions and placement.



The municipality spokesperson, Joseph Ngala said they were caught by surprise by the unruly behaviour of the employees. “First of all the employees came to the municipal offices unexpectedly, demanding to speak to the city manager but unfortunately only to find that he was not in the office due to other commitments. However, they promised to wait for his return so that they could voice their grievances. But now we are surprised and disturbed that they have taken to the streets of the city, causing havoc,” he explained.
