South Africa: Durban Port Expansion Plan Causes Major Concerns

Durban residents say they will not give up their homes to make way for a multi-billion port expansion plan.

Cardinal Wilfred Napier, chairman of the KwaZulu-Natal Inter-Religious Council, stated: “When a plan like this is presented to you under the pretence of following procedure, all groups need to speak with one voice.”

According to timeslive.co.za, the plan includes the creation of two multibillion-rand ports at the site of the old Durban airport and in Bayhead.

“The affected communities could be more easily manipulated if they allowed their leaders to be co-opted by those who had the power to make decision,” concluded Napier.
