Consulting Engineers South Africa (CESA) strongly condemns the actions of vandals and the continued opportunism exercised by criminal elements and political opponents that are currently running amok destroying the lives and livelihoods of citizens.

Chris Campbell, CEO of CESA states, “There will be no winners if we continue destroying our own country, our businesses and infrastructure, we will all be losers. In times such as the war against an invisible enemy, Covid-19, we need to work together to rebuild and not compound the problem.”

We are calling on Government to act expeditiously as we will in no time face a serious threat to the availability of key necessities that people depend on, with this violence becoming more widespread. We cannot afford to allow anything to impede the continued and much needed roll out of our country’s vaccine programme in our fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.
