The Nelson Mandela Bay municipality said its programme dubbed War Room On No Service Delivery had resolved many of the problems concerning the community in the area.
The municipality claimed the programme, which was started on May 11 last year, had “successfully” resolved 92.5% of 72972 service delivery-related cases reported since its inception to May 11 this year.
Spokesperson Kupido Baron said the concerns reported ranged from water and sanitation, electricity and energy to environmental health and waste management, among others.
“Residents are encouraged to continue contacting the municipality on 0800205050 – a free call from a landline – to report any municipal-related matter.”
However, Cope provincial chairperson Sam Kwelita said one of the main problems crippling the Nelson Mandela Bay was housing.
The party, as part of its newly launched community services work, visited the Nelson Mandela Bay last week.
Kwelita said they visited KwaDwesi township where the community members complained about the quality of their RDP houses.
He said: “Some of the houses built there need rectification. Human settlements officials have promised to look into the matter.
“I also visited Uitenhage where I picked up a number of housing concerns in that area.”
