Jouberton – One family in Ext 19
and the community who live close by, have had to deal with all types of toxic stench coming from a dumping site which has now spilled into Motswiri Street between Ext 10 and 19.

The Au family says the dumping site has been there for over a year now, and attempts to report the crisis have not been heeded by the municipality.

By yesterday cars could not pass from and to Ext 10 and 19 as a result of the spillage into the street.

One community member says this has even affected the health of an elderly family member at one point, motorists also vented out their frustrations after being left stranded and being forced to opt for alternative routes.
