Illegal waste dumps are becoming all too ubiquitous in South Africa. Our neighbourhoods are being rapidly turned into dumping grounds by unscrupulous, ignorant and selfish pillagers. We watch with anger and a sense of helplessness as our neighbourhoods are turned into wastelands.
“Something is Rotten in Durban” initiates the discussion of illegal dumping of waste, with news of the death of little Jordan Lewis, in a bold attempt to draw the reader’s attention to the criminality and seriousness of illegal dumping.
At best it attempts to describe this worldwide phenomenon of illegal waste dumping as it plays out in the dirty streets of South Africa.
