Formal Rejection of Representation Issued to the MM of ELM

A second directive was issued by the Gauteng Provincial Operations: Water & Sanitation Department, to the Emfuleni Municipal Manager, Mr. O. Nkoane, stating that his representation to the first directive, issued to him on 20 September 2018 about the spillage of raw sewage into the Vaal River, has not been accepted.

This second directive instructs Mr. Nkoane to (summarized):

  1. Immediately take corrective action to prevent further spillage of raw sewage into the Vaal River,
  2. Appoint a suitably qualified environmental consultant to compile a rehabilitation plan,
  3. Implement the recommendations of the rehabilitation plan, and
  4. Compile and submit a close-out report after completion of the rehabilitation works

Well, one can only assume from this, second directive, that the focus of the MM was not where it is supposed to be. We wait with abated breath to the response to this second directive…

Flourishing Regards
