Sewage leak worry in Marselle

Talk of the Town - - News -

noth­ing has been done.

“We need a quick in­ter­ven­tion be­cause our children play in that area and when its hot out­side we can’t even leave our win­dows open.”

An­other com­plaint came from Bulelwa Nja­jula who also lives close to the sewage leak. She agrees with Moyikwa, stat­ing that the smell is un­bear­able and the leak is next to pigs that stay there as well.

“It’s been al­most three months since the prob­lem started,” Nja­jula said. “We have children that live close by and we can’t have such prob­lems, [par­tic­u­larly as it is] next to that place where there are pigs. We also no­ticed that cows drink from that dirty wa­ter when they pass by.

“We have re­ported the mat­ter to the mu­nic­i­pal­ity but noth­ing has been done yet. All we want is for some­one to come and at­tend to the mat­ter be­cause it is re­ally start­ing to be­come a huge prob­lem and it’s a health haz­ard. We can’t stay in a place like this, the smell is too much for us to bear.”
