According to disgruntled community members in Harrismith, the town looks like a nuclear waste-land.
This after the Maluti-a-Phofung Municipality failed to collect refuse for the past several months, resulting in a pile-up of refuse in the town, its suburbs and surrounding townships.
The municipality’s temporary solutions are ineffective say inhabitants.
Qwa Qwa and Kestell are also affected. According to Kleynhans service delivery in Maluti-a-Phofung has completely collapsed.
Mayor Vusi Tshabalala’s has not responded to questions.
