Mantashe addresses impact of infrastructure damage on poor and working people

Published on

Gwede Mantashe has stated that the impact of the infrastructure damage will be detrimental to the poor and working people, noting that reconstruction will take a long time.

National Chairperson of the African National Congress (ANC), Gwede Mantashe addressed the impact of the current unrest in KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) and parts of Gauteng on Wednesday, 14 July 2021. Mantashe stated that the biggest impact is on the infrastructure that is serving the poor and the working people.

The chairperson further stated that after destroying infrastructure, there is a sense of self-satisfaction which only results in people suffering, as people will have to travel to find basic essentials like bread. He also stated that it will take a long time to reconstruct the infrastructure that has been destroyed.

Mantashe stated that he believes that the violent protests have nothing to do with the recent incarceration of former president, Jacob Zuma, but has everything to do with what he has referred to as thugs who are stealing in order to get rich.
