City to review policy on support for funerals of deceased councillors

CITY TO REVIEW POLICY ON SUPPORT FOR FUNERALS OF DECEASED COUNCILLORS

EThekwini Municipality would like to state that the council has a long-standing policy to support the bereaved families of all our councilors who have passed on, regardless of their political affiliation.

This issue was discussed extensively at our EXCO meeting yesterday and there was a consensus to review the policy given the current economic climate and the impact Covid-19 has had on the city’s finances.

The city leadership will table a full report at EXCO and Council for further deliberation on the policy. We must indicate that it is quite unfortunate that the Democratic Alliance has decided to grand-stand on such a sensitive matter, particularly to the bereaved families of the two councilors.
