Everyone: sewage treatment is a colonial invention. Africa is merely decolonising and this is part of the process to go back to shiitting in your own drinking water.
And remember.. you can throw your poop at people you don't like....(so you can have **** in the streets too)

This is despite a massive intervention programme involving the South African National Defence Force (SANDF).
Last year, the SANDF was called in to help clean up the Sebokeng Wastewater Treatment Plant as raw sewage polluted the river.
But it cited funding problems earlier this year.
The commission's Buang Jones said a meeting was requested with the Water and Sanitation Department.
True...the Moors did that for Spain.Everyone: sewage treatment is a colonial invention.
Johannesburg - On October 24 last year, President Cyril Ramaphosa declared the Vaal River sewage problem a national crisis and authorised the deployment of the South African National Defence Force (SANDF) to urgently intervene because the local Emfuleni municipality (ELM) had failed.
I led a team of specialists to the Vaal the very next day. We spoke with the ELM to determine the best approach to stabilise the situation and avert the looming humanitarian crisis.
In the meanwhile we deployed our troops consisting of sappers to secure these key point installations from vandalism and theft and our specialist architects, water care engineers, Geographical Information System specialists, artisans and scientists, to refurbish and maintain the water waste management systems, protecting the integrity of the Vaal River from raw human effluent being pumped straight into it – and to safeguard the health of the hundreds of thousands of people living on both banks of the river and beyond who depend on the water, literally for their survival.
