Rat infestation hits JHB streetsApril 19th, 2011 by H&R | Categories: environmental, hotels, industry, restaurants
Johannesburg is facing major health risks in its CBD as a result of rubbish piling up on pavements after Pikitup workers declared themselves on strike recently.
Local news agencies report that rubbish littering the city’s streets have caused the rat population to treble in as many weeks, bringing with them the risk of spreading various diseases through human contact.
Although municipalities have employed the services of private contractors to remove rubbish, the process appears slow and many rubbish dumps have been closed to the public because of excessive pile-ups.
