Pundit Suresh Singh at the site where waste material was illegally dumped

Phoenix resident, Pundit Suresh Singh has made an impassioned plea to residents to stop dumping at religious sites. This comes after waste material was dumped near a worship site in Rydalvale, Phoenix recently.

Pundit Singh from Jagrati Nauyuwak Sangh, who utilises the vacant site to conduct prayers with devotees said, “The perpetrators of this illegal practice not only disrespected the religious site but vandalised and stole building blocks from the site. It is rather sad to see how human beings have degraded to steal, destroy and dispose of
their household litter in an area of worship. All worship sites should be respected and taken care of. No illicit activity should be taking place at any worship site.”

Pundit Singh said he reported the matter to the Phoenix SAPS who swiftly attended to his complaint. He urged members of the community to contact him on 084 824 1736 should they notice any suspicious behaviour pertaining to illegal dumping. Alternatively residents can contact the police station on 031 508 2300.
