DRAIN SOS.


LEANDRA-Residents have called on municipal health inspectors to visit
 business premises operating in the area regularly.
This came after they had seen a sewage drain overflowing with blood 
coming from a local abattoir and butchery on 12 January.
The drain is situated on the left side of the gravel road leading to the
 municipal technical department.
The drain was fixed when Echo visited the area on 18 January.
People who were interviewed on that day were not sure whether the 
problem happened regularly.
"Not many people use this road.
"Only farmers and municipal workers use it,"said a resident.
A man from the abattoir and butchery called last Tuesday afternoon
 and blamed the municipality about the overflowing sewage drain.
According to him this problem was reported.
Mr. Themba Motlhankana, head of Marketing and Communication of
 the municipality, said their Department of Health and Community 
Services is enforcing applicable by - laws to penalise guilty parties.
"We advise business and residents to refrain from putting foreign
 objects in the sewer network.
"This practice causes major blockages and poses a health risk."
