Illegal dumping still a headache

According to a statement by the Sol Plaatje Municipality, a new and integrated plan to address service delivery challenges and sustain a clean city is in place.

In a statement on Thursday (16/01), executive mayor Patrick Mabilo encouraged residents to work with the municipality in its anti-dumping and anti-littering programmes.

The unkempt state of Kimberley was once again in the spotlight during a recent visit by President Cyril Ramaphosa when he said the city is a mess.

According to the statement, all resources have been diverted to cleaning up the city and its surrounding areas.

Illegal dumping, refuse collection, sewage spillages, potholes and burst water pipes are some of the regular challenges.

It was stated that efforts to educate residents on illegal dumping and waste management will be ongoing.

Lindiwe Sisulu, the minister of Human Settlements, Water and Sanitation, said in a statement on Monday (20/01) that South Africa is losing an average of R7,2 billion a year through water leakages in municipal areas.

Although workers are visible throughout the city, cleaning certain areas from rubbish and weed, complaints are still streaming in at Noordkaap’s office and on Facebook pages about, amongst others, illegal dumping and heavy water leaks that had already been reported.

In December, Sharon Steyn, CEO of the Northern Cape Chamber of Commerce (Nocci), advised residents to post their complaints on the Sol Plaatje Municipality’s Facebook page, as well as those of the mayor and the premier, Dr Zamani Saul.
