STRIKE ACTION CLOSES BEACHES – 3rd May 2019: Please note the lifeguards have been forced to abandon their posts by other striking municipal workers resulting in a full beach closure in uMhlanga Rocks. This intimidation has also affected our dedicated municipal beach and ablution-block cleaners, who came to work today but have no choice but to leave. The UIP will take over as much cleaning work as they can but note that there is a lot of debris on the beach that hasn’t yet been cleaned. Apologies for this but please understand the situation these employees are in.
