Mackenzie, Mr C to ask the Minister of Telecommunications and Postal Services
With reference to his reply to question 261 on March 2017, what are the details of the postal services provided by the SA Post Office to the residents of (a) Kidd’s Beach and (b) Seavale in the Eastern Cape?
I have been informed by SAPO as follows:
- Kidd’s Beach
Kidd’s Beach was an Agency which closed down because the owner no longer wished to provide postal services. The post boxes have remained in the same location and continue being serviced.
A new shopping centre is in the process of being built. SAPO has approached one of the tenants and negotiations are currently underway to establish an Agency.
There are no postal outlets at Seavale. Some of the residents of Seavale have their post boxes at Kidd’s Beach. Mail for street delivery are left in a box for some of the residents at a shop.
Currently, ownership of the shop is changing and SAPO will make arrangements with the new owner in the interim. SAPO intends to introduce street delivery in Seavale.
Approved/ not approved
Dr Siyabonga Cwele, MP
Minister of Telecommunications and Postal Services
