The civil rights watchdog AfriForum send a request to the National Council of Provinces (NCP) on Wednesday, 30 August 2017 regarding the vandalising of the newly-built pound in Paulpietersburg.
This follows after numerous requests from AfriForum to T.V. Mkhize, Municipal Manager, and S.J. Kunene, the Mayor, to intervene.
“Stray cattle are becoming a major problem for Paulpietersburg’s residents and it is unacceptable that the pound (that was built as a solution to this problem) is being allowed to be demolished by vandals,” says Eugene van Aswegen, AfriForum’s Provincial Coordinators for KwaZulu-Natal.
