A good South African word that describes the indescribable stench at Big Bay. Come on City of Cape Town. Are you waiting for an outbreak of some dread virus or bacteria before something is done? This photo comes from Monday's Cape Times reporting all too briefly on the protest by concerned citizens over the sewage spillages. The beach is no longer a Blue Flag beach but no-one seems unduly concerned. My nieces and nephews - surfers and lifesavers - hate competing at events at Big Bay because of its stench and slime. My feeling is that there are simply too many new developments taking place with no proper environmental planning taking place.
