“Today I saw a video from Mangaung showing water coming back out of drainage system instead of flowing through it. They have failed dismally.”

@Swart47321327 responded:

“Hasn't it crossed your mind once that drain systems are affected by littering? Communities must play a role not to allow people to randomly do illegal dumping. We all know the ANC has failed to hire people who will constantly do drainage maintenance.”

@PlantFather2 said:

“Well there's no damage to the roads because there were never any roads.”
