sewage problem

In the past few days sewage has been bursting in the streets of Extension 18 Ezinambeni kwa-guqa. Two sewer spillages were identified in the streets of Extension 18 and this become a big problem in the community. As the sewer spillage flows in people’s yards making it difficult to freely walk as most of the sewer drain are next to the kitchen doors.

The first sewer to burst was inside a yard of an old woman where it created a dam that led to her inside home,never mind the smell. The second sewer to burst was in the yard too. These were running in the streets and still are polluting. sometimes the municipal comes and fix the blockages and sometimes the flow will stop without being fixed. We are hopping that the municipality will take action as soon as possible because the smell is bad and it comes with sickness.
