No consequences, no intervention: N3 Midlands warzone

Issued by Christopher Pappas – DA Mooi-uMngeni Constituency Head

The Democratic Alliance Mooi-uMngeni Constituency is worried about the continued violence on the N3 and the lack of adequate response from the government.

Communities along the N3 including Mooi River, Howick and Hilton are bearing the brunt of socio-economic driven violence and lawlessness.

Blatant criminal activity is not being dealt with. Criminals are burning trucks and intimidating drivers at the expense of the economy, peace, law, and order: both nationally and locally.

Residents and businesses along the N3 from Mooi River to Hilton are living in consistent fear and in a state of perpetual unease because of the looting and violence.

DA KwaZulu-Natal Spokesperson on Transport, Sharon Hoosen, has written to the MEC for Transport demanding urgent action be taken but it seems as if the MEC is not willing to take bold steps to protect our communities.

The Democratic Alliance in the Mooi-uMngeni constituency is calling on the Provincial and National government to do more to stabilize the situation on the N3 and to return law and order once again.
