SANDF deployed to resolve poor waste-management of the Vaal River system
The South African National Defence Force is setting up camp along the Vaal River, deploying its engineers and experts to resolve poor waste-management of the river.
According to conservation groups approximately 150 million litres of sewage flows into the river each day.
Or is it a real admission that actually they simply cannot deal with the problem and what does it mean in the long term?
But is it right that the army is being bought in to deal with the remit of the Emfuleni Local Municipality?
Public policy specialist and lecturer at North-West University Kagiso Pooe says the municipality has basically collapsed most of its services.
They cannot do probably the simplest job for one of its biggest resources which is mainly the water in the region and this is basically the last straw and we should be thankful that the military has been notified which specialises in water studies.Kagiso Pooe, Public Policy Specialist and lecturer at the North-West University
