Sewer pipe leaks that is passing in the street (matthew phosa street)which has a environment risk and public health is affected especially children they play with water from the sewer and they contact dieases such as diarrhoea,tapeworm infection after they play in the sewer water they dont wash hands

Because the sewer has lots of faeces(human waste) plastic,disposal nappies,sanitary all kind of rubbish including use condoms

Children blow use condoms this flowing make it easy for children to come into contact with germs
