STOP the ECOCIDE of the uMbilo River
Thank you for supporting Desiree and Dewlyn's petitions demanding action on the high E.Coli levels in the eThekwini rivers in Durban, South Africa. A massive shout out to the Greenpeace Africa Durban volunteers who helped them.
After the petition was handed over late last year, Greenpeace Africa Durban volunteers were invited by Dr Reggy Cele, Deputy Head of KZN Metros (S.A.), to participate in the panel discussions on the ongoing issue of the highly polluted KwaZulu Natal rivers. Our voices have been heard, and now we are part of our beloved rivers' restorations.
Thank you to over 9000 people who supported and signed our petition. It is incredible what ordinary South Africans and VUMA can achieve together.
