A concerned resident, Peter Habib, wrote to 702's Azania Mosaka regarding an apparent sewage spillage into the river. Habib lives in a townhouse complex on the Vaal River in Vereeniging next door to the Bon Riviera Hotel.
He told Azania that they have been having a problem with raw sewerage overflowing from a pump station into the river. The residents, he said, had made numerous attempts to contact the Emfuleni Local Municipality but most of the time their complaints fell on deaf ears.
