Still no clarity on White River’s water

It’s been more than 24 hours and the City of Mbombela Local Municipality is yet to explain the disgusting state of White River’s water

In the meanwhile locals are getting sick, and suspect that the turbid state of the tap water is at fault.

Numerous residents have approached the newspaper with photos of water, containing either a brown, oily substance or white flakes floating around. Rita Rama, a resident of Kingsview, said they have been drinking this water out the taps for about two weeks now, getting sick, only to realise there is something “sif” lurking in the water. “I filled this water bottle in the morning, a few hours later, look what I found… we tried boiling the water, but it tastes disgusting… please be careful, many of us are getting sick in our area,” said Rama.

White River Post will keep you updated on the situation as soon as more information becomes available.
