The GOOD SG has called out the City of Cape Town for its delayed intervention in resolving the conditions of the Langa sewerage spill.
The Secretary-General (SG) of the GOOD party, Brett Herron, on Monday, 19 July 2021, raised concerns over the Community of Langa in Cape Town, which is said to be living in accumulating daily sewerage spills on their door steps. Herron stated that residents of the Zones and Church Square in Langa have been complaining since May 2021.
According to Herron, residents claim that when officials are sent out to assess the situation, all they do is take photographs and never return, and that this was a process that has repeated itself for months. The SG further stated that in the city’s hierarchy of priorities, the poor occupy the lowest rung, despite being in need the most for urgent intervention. Herron also described the conditions as inhumane and a gross violation of human rights. He concluded by stating that he has written to the city mayor, calling for a resolve.
