The septic tank at the Riebeek East Police Station has been overflowing for some time.
This constitutes a health hazard and I am proud to say that the DA cares and has taken action to address the problem.
Our members tested the water and were shocked to find that it did indeed test positive for Ecoli!
This poses a very serious health risk to the people and livestock who use these roads.
The DA supports the Constitution and believes that the health of every single member of the public matters.
This is why I have submitted written questions for written reply to the Legislature asking if the Department of Health (DOH) has investigated this health issue. If so, when this was done and if not, when it will be done?
I have also asked what measures will be taken to prevent any repetition of this health risk and what steps the DOH will take to maintain and/or empty conservancy and septic tanks in the Eastern Cape.
Responses from the DOH will be released to the media because the DA believes that “knowledge is power” and our people deserve to have their right to health protected.
