SHARPEVILLE - Sharpeville residents are facing a serious health hazard due to a dysfunctional sewerage system and the lack of service delivery by the Emfuleni Local Municipality. Sunday Times report that residents have struggled to maintain the sewerage system for years now resulting in the sewerage pipes bursting in people’s yards. According to the Sunday Times, the municipality has indicated to the residents that there is no money to provide the services required. This has forced a group of residents to start an initiative to stop the stench in their neighborhood and to address service delivery.
