EDENDALE residents are turning, what is supposed to be a bicycle park at Wadley Stadium, into a dumping ground. According to a resident, this has been going on for more than a year as people from Smero and Edendale are using the stadium as a dump site.

“It a shame to see that the people of Edendale are striking for improvement while they are turning, what was supposed to be a bicycle park, into a dumping site,” said Sihle Majola.

Maritzburg City Football Club games are held at the stadium.

“Since last year I have reported this matter to our councillor’s office, but up until today they have never done anything about it or replied.

“I once saw an Msunduzi Municipality car passing the dump site and I thought they were going to clean it up, instead they took photos and drove away.”

The local councillor’s office is 50 metres away from this dumping site.

Nomvelo Mthembu, who works in the same office, said she doesn’t know anything about the situation and no one has reported it before.

“If this was happening in Scottville or Bisley, the councillor would have been fired and the matter would have been dealt with quickly,” said Majola
