Mobeni Heights Cremetorium reopened
Mobeni Heights Crematorium Visit
The Mobeni Heights Crematorium is back in business and has resumed operations. The state-of-the-art furnace was imported from a manufacturer in the United States last year and underwent several tests to ensure effectiveness and compliance with protocols governing the operation of these establishments.

Chairperson of the Community Services Committee Councillor Ntokozo Sibiya conducted an inspection on 8 February to ensure that the facility is ready to operate without incident. She extended her gratitude to residents who bore the brunt of the previous furnace malfunctioning and halting operations.
“We sincerely apologise to all residents who were inconvenienced by the non-operation of the facility. Bereaved families and funeral parlours can now make use of the facility as it is back on track,” she said.

The new facility is fully digital and as a result, can be monitored electronically by its manufacturers abroad with ease.

Councillor Sibiya said the technology will go a long way to assist the manufacturers to detect any technical threats to its functional ability and to act accordingly.

She also received a report outlining the work underway to get a second furnace to start operations soon. Furthermore, work was at an advanced stage to replace the old furnace at the uThongathi Crematorium.
