Dumping site a great cause for concern

Concerned resident, Kroonstad:

Public safety The safety of the publicat the municipal dumping site leaves much to be desired.

Driving into the site is a hair-raising experience.

Your vehicle is immediately swarmed by people who insist on helping you offload your garden refuse.

They are intimidating and scary to say the least. If you confront them and tell them you do not need help, they get aggressive and hostile.

Because some of them are under the influence of narcotics or glue, they pose not only a threat to others, but also themselves. They step in front of moving vehicles and fall off when they attempt to jump onto the vehicles.

Someone is going to get hurt and the Moqhaka Municipality will be held responsible for the lack of safety and security at the site.

Most of these people are destitute and their welfare is a cause for concern. However, nothing is being done to root out the opportunistic and criminal elements among them and nothing is done to root that out.

A friend was wrongly accused of “threatening” the hordes of people who jumped on his bakkie with a firearm, just because he got out to chase them off, which is a lie.

When is the municipality going to take responsibility for the lawless­ness that is prevalent at the dump, or should law-abiding citizens also start transgressing the law by dumping their refuse in the streets or in front of municipal offices?
