March in JBay about to start
About 250 people have gathered on JBay’s beachfront this morning in preparation for the march scheduled to start at 10 am . St Francis and JBay people here, say they are protesting about poor service delivery and they are going to march to the municipal offices in Da Gama Street – about two blocks – to hand over a list of grievances.
The letter is intended for Mayor Booi Koerat, but the St Francis Chronicle has reliably learned he will not be here to receive the list as he had prior commitments. Several of the peole are holding banners that read: “Raw sewerage kills people!”
