There has also been a lack of transparency in the consultation of interested parties and it's contended that the process to have the cellular mast constructed is

Refuse collection crisis plaguing Benoni.

We the undersigned call upon the Portfolio Committee of Environment to urgently investigate the continuing refuse collection crisis plaguing Benoni.

To try and keep this as brief as possible: The South African Bloodstock industry currently supports over 150,000 people Currently, horses from South Africa being exported have to endure:
