A little bit more eventful than anticipated.

That’s one way to describe public works and infrastructure minister Patricia de Lille’s visit to Nelson Mandela Bay this week.

“I could sense the anger and frustration of the crowd that came there,” De Lille tells us in That Weekend Feeling with Daron Mann this week.
