May walk in Zamimpilo

Community Alerts/Dawn Anderson/Riverlia-Soweto/03/04/18

Riverlea Johannesburg mining community members together with the councillor planned a walk about on Workers Day to Zamimpilo nearby informal settlement. What they saw was illegal water and electrical connections, broken taps, neglected animals like goats, sheep, cows, dogs and chickens.   The playground for the children were the dumping sites. The councillor said he joined them in their walk, so everyone could understand the real issues and not hearsay causing unnecessary tension but getting truth from both sides. By Dawn Anderson
