Amba Ssador started this petition to Emfuleni Local Municipality, Gauteng Provincial Government and SA Human Rights C

Section 24 of the South African Bill of Rights states that "everyone has the right to clean environment". Our area has slowly become inhabitable because of illegal dump at the nearby open field, which was a productive mielie-field until 2003. All kinds of waste from oils, plastics (chemical), biological up to dead animals are piled in heaps.

For solid 10 years the community of Barnasdal and Stephanopark, Vanderbijlpark in Gauteng province have requested the illegal dumping to be stopped and dump to be removed from Cillier street illegal dump site. Emfuleni Local Municipality, Gauteng Provincial Government (ref. END 5707) and the South African Human Rights Commision (ref. GP/1920/0002) have been engaged in vain. None of these public servants are attending to the requests to clean and maintain the environment for human habitation. No ByLaws, not even the Polluter Pays principle is enforced by those in authority.

Scavengers burn the waste and the smoke make way into homes, they also scatter non bio-degradables such as plastics into the yards of the immediate community. This proves to be a serious health and safety transgression from the people who are supposed to enforce ByLaws through offices of sworn government officials, to the illegal dumpsters.

Signing this petition can change all this for the better, government officials to deliver due services.
