Residents in the KZN town of Howick remain frustrated at the lack of service delivery and hilariously take a stand by hosting a fishing tournament at a pothole.
Residents in the quaint town of Howick in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands are fed up with the local government for their lack of service delivery as massive potholes continue to haunt residents. Despite countless requests, the uMngeni municipality has yet to repair the roads and in a bid to protest, residents hilariously host a fishing tournament to raise awareness for the plagued Curry’s Post road.
The Curry’s Post Conservancy, in a bid to raise awareness and raise funds, held a fishing competition that has social media buzzing.
The conservancy has asked residents to donate R20 per fishing rod on the day and that they take to their social media pages to share what they are doing and bring light to the massive pothole problem on the road.
As luck would have it, the recent rains played an integral part of the campaign as water filled up the massive potholes, which made them look like small ponds.
With the massive amount of potholes on the road, residents were able to make a stand but also socially distance themselves, ensuring that everyone was kept safe on the day.Here are some more hilarious images from the event:
