Dusi guts again?

2008-09-15 00:00

It is just over four months to go before the 2009 Dusi Canoe Marathon, which is set to run from January 15 to 17. Last year, a Duzi-uMngeni Conservation Trust (Duct) survey among competitors found that 45% of the participants became ill with “Dusi guts” — diarrhoea and/or vomiting.

“We have to wait for the rains before we have a full picture of the current health of the Duzi,” said Lin Gravelet-Blondin, deputy director: Water Quality Management for Dwaf.
