GALLERY: FEAR FOR CHILDREN: The two deep holes at Bongweni in Komani filled with sewage are yet to be covered up with schools set to open on Wednesday.
The safety of children remains under threat, while the health of the community has also been placed at risk.
The Rep reported on the hazard on its website, “Fears for safety as sewage ‘pool’ deepens in Bongweni,” on January 11.
The Rep reporter today witnessed a group of children who looked to be under the age of 10 playing near the two holes. They were throwing rocks into the holes.
