Heinz de Boer who exclaimed in a video posted on Facebook that he is the executive councillor of the eThekwini municipality and the ward councillor for Umhlanga has found the condition of the beachfront unacceptable.

De Boer also explains that the eThekwini municipality had been informed months ago that the pipes needed to be replaced.
