The stench of raw sewage was evident again yesterday in the surf town of Jeffreys Bay as Main Beach remained covered with effluent from the La Mer pump station.
There was also a strong smell emanating from the kloof near the Koraal Street pump station and it is clear that a significant sewage spill has taken place yet again.
Municipal workers in Jeffreys Bay locked themselves into the yard in St Croix Street again yesterday which meant that no work was done on fixing the sewage spill. The Poplar Street area of Wavecrest was also without water due to burst pipes which need to be repaired urgently.
Businesses in da Gama Road are complaining about the black bags of rubbish that are strewn along the main road in Jeffreys Bay. No collection of rubbish has taken place this week, as workers protest about their pension fund contributions being taken from their salaries but not being paid over to pension funds.
The Municipal Manager, Mr Fadi enraged the work force on Tuesday when he refused to attend a meeting in the Newton Hall to discuss the problem. Fadi instead chose to meet only with union representatives.
