Uveze nokuthi iningi lalezi zakhiwo liqhelelene kakhulu nabantu kanti nasekwakhiweni kwazo bekungakhulunywanga nomphakathi.

Lezo zikhungo zimbili, zakhiwe wuzwelonke uzakhela ukuthi zibe ngamaTusong Centre. Kuyaxakake ukuthi lesi esinye kabasazi kodwa lesi esinye basebenzela kusona sekungamahhovisi abo," kusho uMnu Khawula.
