Es­tate’s koi pond ‘dis­gust­ingly dirty’

Talk of the Town - - News -

I REG­U­LARLY walk with my dog through the neigh­bour­hood and I’m proud to be a Port Al­fred res­i­dent. What a priv­i­lege.

I have also seen many koi fish in their ponds and what a beau­ti­ful sight. But what a hor­ri­ble “sur­prise” awaited me when I walked past Riverview Wa­ter­front Es­tate, where the pond is dis­gust­ingly dirty. The fish can hardly be seen in the sludgy wa­ter and there are spi­der webs all over the pond.

Sev­eral times we have asked the se­cu­rity guards on duty to re­port it to their man­age­ment and they told us they have, a few times, but to no avail.

What an un­savoury ad­ver­tise­ment in­deed.

I don’t care for the Riverview Es­tate it­self, I care about the poor fish in such a filthy, un­savoury fish pond.
