SOME Enhlalakahle residents wake up daily to an overwhelming stink of overflowing sewage from a blocked sewerage main pipe which erupts raw sewage through backyard toilets.

Despite numerous complaints and desperate appeals to Umzinyathi District Municipality (its reticulation team is responsible), absolutely no action whatsoever has been taken.

Apart from the indignity of having this on the doorstep of your home the health hazard is enormous.

With local government elections around the corner – there could be positive action to assist these residents (and voters), especially as the Salga slogan being promoted through the media is “demonstrating the restoration of dignity”.
