KZN employees cross dangerous road, upsets locals

A short clip of hundreds of employees making their way to work by crossing a road that could collapse at any minute has been shared online by a Twitter user who couldn’t believe how desperate the situation in KZN has become following the deadly floods that have hit the province over the last few weeks.

Taking to the app on 13 April this year, @thusi_nomzamo shared the clip while slamming the employers of the people who risked their lives not to miss time at work.

In the same breath, she slammed the government for the devastating level of poverty in the country that has basically left workers with no choice.

“#KZNFlooding #KZNWeather what kind of employers do our people work for? What kind of desperation is this that they would risk their lives to go to work.

More than anything our government has failed our ppl poverty and desperation will kill our people only for them to be replaced,” she wrote.

“Honestly speaking it’s sad, I walked with these people today and all they were worried about is to get full pay at the end of the month because their bosses have a “No work no pay” Policy 💔

“Poor black South Africans seem to have accepted this life. That’s why they would rather fight for jobs than ownership of the land and the economy.”
