Durban – Mourning families may be forced to fork out more than double the expected cremation tariff over the next two weeks at alternative crematoriums as gas supplies at the municipal Mobeni Heights facility run dry.
KwaZulu-Natal Funeral Directors Association representative, Dhayalan Moodley, told the Daily News on Monday that the liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) was not being supplied because the municipality had allegedly not paid its supplier. He said this would severely hamper the crematorium’s function.
“We’ve been plagued by one problem after another over the past year, but the issue of gas supply is the most recent challenge.”
Moodley said while the Chatsworth facility had continued to accept bookings, they had cut back on operations substantially.
