  1. I wish to launch a complaint over the sewer line flowing through the drainage that passes through most of our yards here in Zingalume, Twikatane road, paradise area.

    We have been facing this public nuisance for over 4months from the time rain season ended. We have head allegations from general community that there is a bar and tavern who have allegedly found it cheaper to channel sewer lines into the drainage than to build ceptic tanks and soak aways.

    We escalated the issue to our ward councillor who has gone mute without sorting the problem. This has raised suspicions that maybe he was bribed or he has just a bad work culture.

    In a broader view, besides being a complaint on public nuisance, ZEMA should focus on enhancing environmental conservation. This drainage being contaminated might be leading to a stream being used for domestic works such as washing, cooking or even as drinking water leading to water borne diseases.
