The City of Durban in KwaZuluNatal has come to life with glitz and glamour because of Durban July. Racegoers are ready to party and showcase their fashion.
Other parts of the city are still reeling from floods and most parts of Durban and KwaZuluNatal Province are still without running water and are struggling to fulfil day to day basic needs.
In April floods wrecked untold havoc in Durban and other parts of KwaZuluNatal Province leaving residents without basics such as water, and electricity.
Thousands were left homeless after mudslides and torrential rains washed away many homes across the Province.
Durban July is an economic event that brings with it many business opportunities and gains for the City and Province at large.
Thousands of residents in Durban and other parts of KwaZuluNatal are still receiving water from bowsers and some rely on boreholes. ENCA NEWS reported.
