VAAL TRIANGLE - Deputy President David Mabuza said he would approach Treasury for more funds for the cleanup project at the Sebokeng Wastewater Treatment facility. Mabuza visited the Emfuleni area yesterday to check on progress made with the Vaal River Rehabilitation Project, which kicked off last year after the river was polluted by raw sewage from pump stations in the Emfuleni Municipality. The South African National Defence Force (SANDF) was brought in earlier this year to help clean the Sebokeng Wastewater Treatment plant, but the SANDF’s work stalled after the R350 million set aside for the project ran out. Mabuza was not impressed by this. He said the spillage into the Vaal River is not yet dealt with and they need to move a bit faster. Mabuza said the complaint is that they don’t have money. The deputy president said he would approach the Treasury for more funds.
