Earlier in the week, as I was jogging along Mulungushi road my senses were assaulted by an offensive smell coming from the drainage along the road.I noticed raw sewage flowing in the drains!
Apparently Foxdale Court releases the sewage night up to early in the morning into the outside drains. The water is not there during the day.
I enquired and was told LCC did not give them a permit to build a soak away. So when the septic tanks are full they have to pump the sewage out. If they don’t, the sewage which is connected to the pipe you can see in the video goes into the road.This happens every year from the time they opened the mall.
The road is mostly used by people who are going for work and pupils to Roma girls school. It’s a transit route. Mulungushi road is in a low density residential area and most local residents drive to work.
I appeal to the relevant authorities to put a stop to this as this is a public health risk.
