Since the source of the Listerosis outbreak was announced, it’s been reported that people are either giving their cold meats to the poor or dumping it at various landfill sites.
Leader of the Interim Johannesburg Reclaimers’ Committee Steven Leeuw shares his concerns about the wide spreading epidemic, and what it means for those who are financially disadvantaged.
It’s quite a traumatizing situation that I experienced because I had to leave everything to go inform people in Joburg says Leeuw. He adds that they had to explain to people why they shouldn’t eat certain foods.
