PARRA has serious concerns relating to the lack of communication and feedback from the Municipality, particularly the Department of Infrastructure. PARRA accordingly, we addressed the following correspondence to Ndlambe LM, the following officials were included (Municipal Manager – Advocate Rolly Dumezweni; Customer Care Officer – Georgina Nkombisa; Director of Infrastructure Noluthando Vithi, Deputy Director of Infrastructure – Sipho Babama; Supervisor Onke Sopela):
PARRA have reported the non-functioning Sunningdale sewage pump station on numerous occasions. See picture above. Port Alfred’s sewage issues are just getting worse and worse. PARRA has repeatedly asked for an audit of all the Port Alfred sewage pump stations. Have the three Nemato sewage stations that pour sewage directly into the Kowie River been fixed yet? See picture above. This has also been reported on numerous occasions. Previously when residents reported sewage and water leaks on the PARRA Sewage/Water WhatsApp there was a response from the Infrastructure Department. Recently there is no response at all to these posts. The front of the Museum was flooded with sewage. Again this was reported but there has been no response on whether this matter is being attended to. There is just no communication or report back from the Infrastructure Department about any of these and other water and sewage issues.
PARRA would like to work together with the Municipality to help resolve these issues.
Dawie van Wyk
We await a response from Ndlambe LM.
