Whilst the United Democratic Movement (UDM), commends the intervention of both the KwaZulu-Natal MEC for the Department of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs and the President, the UDM is of the view that the funds should be diversified to;

1. Offer immediate help to the victims;
2. Attend to the water-drainage infrastructure which seems to be inadequate, to cater for heavy storms in order to deal with communities’ anxiety due to the uncertainty of being the next victims should there be another bout of heavy rains.

In all this, the committed funding should be made public for all to know!
