UBukiwe May wase-Mdantsane NU 3 e-East London ujabule ngokuhlasela koKlebe kuMasipala wase-Buffalo City ngoLwesine ekuseni.

Uthi, iziphathimandla zikamasipala zenze abahlali bahlupheka ngesikhathi somvalelo “basiphuce isinkwa sethu semihla ngemihla”, futhi uthi izikhulu ezisolwayo ziphinde zadlulisela izaphulelo zokudla kubangani bazo.

OKlebe bagasele kumasipala ngenxa yezinsolo zenkohlakalo ezibandakanya izigidi ezingama-R30 ezazenzelwe izaphulelo zokudla.

UBukiwe utshele abakwa-Scrolla.Africa ngoLwesine ukuthi, uhlelo lokudla olwaluthenjisiwe lushiye kanjani umndeni wakhe ungenalutho.

“Ilungu lekomidi lesigceme elivela ehhovisi lekhansela lakuwadi le-14 lafika kwami ​​lathi libhalisela bonke osomabhizinisi ama-voucher okudla abangakwazi ukwenza imali ngenxa yomvalelo.

“Wangibhalisa ngoba ngiyaziwa lapha ngokuya eThekwini naseGoli ngiyothenga izingubo ngiphinde ngizidayise,” esho enanela ngokuthi ngenxa yomvalelo akakwazanga ukuqhuba ibhizinisi lakhe lezingubo.

“Ngigcine ukwenza ibhizinisi ngoNhlolanja ngaphambi kokuvalwa futhi kusukela lapho bengilwela ukuthola imali.

“Abaholi bethu banikeze ama-voucher okudla abantu babo ababathandayo. La ma-voucher abephakathi kwama-R700 nama-R750. Abenzelwe thina ukuthi sithenge ukudla kwa-Spar. Kodwa angikaze ngikuthole. Ngatshelwa ukuthi asephelile futhi ngizokuthola ukudla uma uhulumeni esekhiphe amaphasela okudla,” kusho uBukiwe.

UBukiwe akakaze athole lutho.

Uthi, uyajabula ngophenyo futhi “oKlebe kumele baphenye bajule. Kumele bababambe ngoba basenze sahlupheka”.

Okhulumela oKlebe u-Colonel Katlego Mogale uthe, “ithimba lishaqe imibhalo nemishini ye-elekthronikhi equkethe imininingwane yokuqhuba uphenyo. Izinsolo zithi izinqubo zokuthengwa kwempahla zivezwe yi-Supply Chain Manager nabanikeli bezinsizakalo abayi-18 ekuthengeni ama-voucher okudla e-Covid-19.”

Umasipala ulwamukele uphenyo wathembisa ukubambisana. Okhulumela lo masipala uSamkelo Ngwenya uthe, “sisesimweni sokubika isenti ngalinye elichithwe kuzo zonke izitolo ngesikhathi salolu hlelo lokulwa nendlala futhi singakwazi ukulandela yonke i-invoyisi ethunyelwe.”
