Residents of Vereeniging, Sebokeng, Boipatong, Sharpeville, Evaton and Vanderbijlpark can no longer live with the stench of sewerage wafting off the Vaal River and into their homes.
Sign our petition calling on President Cyril Ramaphosa to declare the Emfuleni Municipality a disaster area.
The sewerage problem poses serious health risks to the residents!
When the municipality failed to fix the water system, the South African National Defence Force (SANDF) was deployed to do the job but they have since suspended their work due to a lack of funds!
Furthermore, the municipality, which is already under partial administration, cannot provide basic services to the residents – the billing system is a mess, there are faulty meters and persistent water leaks, unpaid utility bills and uncollected rubbish strewn all over.
We will keep fighting to make Emfuleni government clean and accountable so that it delivers reliable services to all residents.
