The City of Cape Town is not providing adequate infrastructure for lifesavers to perform their duties, says the chairperson of Western Province (WP) Lifesaving.
Tessa van Staden, standing in for Stephen Grootes, spoke to Mayedwa about the allegations they made against the City.
Listen to the conversation below:
We cannot provide this important service and at the same time the City looks down on us....We are not saying that the City must give us money, we are saying the City must provide adequate infrastructure, such as these club houses.— Mziwoxolo Mayedwa, WP Lifesaving chairperson
Imagine if ever we were to give them back the same treatment that they are giving us, where they give us poor service and we stop providing lifeguards or training any member of the public to become lifeguards.— Mziwoxolo Mayedwa, WP Lifesaving chairperson
This comes after an Eye Witness News report on resources available to lifeguards in the Western Cape.
