Eddie Krog, the DA PR councillor for Ward 24 and 25 (and still involved in Ward 5), has had more than enough of all the sewerage problems in Randfontein.

“In Main Road, close to KFC, the sewage spills constantly, which attracts flies. A resident said to me he cannot live like this anymore.”

The DA is now petitioning this issue to the Rand West City Local Municipality, the West Rand District Municipality and provincial structures.
