Thoughts on the Qtn tip?

The Rep - - NEWS -

THE Rep is look­ing into var­i­ous con­cerns raised about air pol­lu­tion, al­legedly caused by fires at the Lukhanji refuse tip near Ez­i­be­leni. Over the past weeks, sev­eral res­i­dents have com­plained of bronchial or lung in­fec­tions which they be­lieve may be at­trib­uted to the smog and have raised con­cerns over the en­vi­ron­men­tal im­pact of the fires. Lukhanji ex­ec­u­tive mayor Nozi Makanda re­cently in­di­cated that plan­ning was un- der­way to move the tip while spokesman Fundile Feket­shane has pro­duced ad­di­tional in­for­ma­tion which will form part of the planned story.

We would like to in­vite res­i­dents who want to speak about the tip - whether with a pos­i­tive rec­om­men­da­tion or a con­cern - to con­tact The Rep on zo­lilem@times­me­ or send a fax to 045- 839 4059.

Please in­clude your name and in­di­cate if you would like to re­main anony­mous.
