Gift Phoswa said, “Yes, we are neglecting it. The rivers and dams are not clean, people litter. Even when the municipality cleans, tomorrow it becomes dirty again. It’s the small things we do unknowingly that affect the environment.”
Community members were asked if they think the human race is neglecting the environment.
Victor Moremi said, “Yes, there are people who don’t love their country, they litter everywhere. They don’t care about their surroundings or themselves." Giovanna Green said, “Yes, I don’t think people think about pollution, they just chuck wherever because it’s easy and there are no consequences. People don’t care, they lack education on the issue." Brian Naidoo said, “Yes, especially if you look at the rivers, people are also using it to take a bath. There are diseases that can be picked up. People don’t care, they just don’t bother about the environment."
