The leader of the DA in Kouga, Elza Van Lingen visited all the towns in the region this week.
Of particular concern was the vast amount of uncollected refuse that is evident in Humandorp, as well as other towns like Jeffreys Bay.
Sewage spills are also commonplace in the Kouga, with raw effluent running in the streets in Kruisfontein as well as Mandela Bay (Jeffreys Bay).
“I will be taking the issues up with the respective national departments as the people of Kouga cannot continue to live like this,” said Van Lingen.
“It is time for change in Kouga and the DA is ready to govern and can about a better quality of life for all of our residents,” added Van Lingen.
