This week’s news

23.01 Africa

Editorial 29 January 2015

It can be done.  I was in Cape Town last week, and as we drove past the large townships I noticed the inevitable rubbish next to the road – and I was sad.  Kaap, o Kaap jou mooiste Kaap…

That was on Thursday morning.  On Friday we used the same road, but then piles of blue bags filled with roadside rubbish caught my eye.  Wow!  Auntie Zilla is at it again – the rubbish had been collected, so I was wondering how many days it would be before it is collected…

Monday morning we were there again – not a single blue bag in sight, they had in fact been collected, and staff in orange uniforms were already working to clear the weekend’s rubbish.

Man, if they can do it, why can’t we?  We are loosing it – the open space towards Marina Martinique, the road leading from Humansdorp, not to forget the section between St Francis Bay and Cape St Francis.  Nee man.  Who can come up with a workable sollution?  Just like Cape Town?
