Shocking allegations have been made against officials who are meant to be distributing donations to flood victims in KwaZulu-Natal.

Residents of KwaSanti near Pinetown claim officials are helping themselves to food, blankets and mattresses meant for victims.

The residents are calling on government to intervene.
