The municipality recalled the urgency of taking care of stray animals

The High Court of Makhanda (Grahamstown) reminded the Municipality of Ndlambe that it should already have started to put in place processes to rectify the problem of stray animals and poorly managed communes.

Acting Judge Avinash Govindjee gave reasons for the order he issued against the municipality last month, in which he gave strict deadlines to the municipality, city manager Rolly Dumezweni and former mayor, Khululwa Ncamiso, to solve various problems.

The case has dragged on since 2016, when Agri EC, the Agricultural Association of Alexandria and four local farmers first went to court. They obtained several orders in agreement with the municipality, but none gave rise to the corrective measures sought.

Throughout this process, the municipality had to pay costs.
