Khayelitsha community activists have made some headway in getting the City of Cape Town to solve its sewage issues.
Following protest action in Site B this morning over the municipality’s poor handling of sewage in their area, the City deployed officials to start remedying blocked sewage systems.
Leader of the South African National Civic Organisation Ludwa Vara says the while the city agreed to meet their demands, it warned that they are still battling with budget constraints.
Among the demands includes the employment of more staff at sewer stations, temporary repairs to vandalised pump stations, and ensuring the safety of maintenance staff.
