We are faced with an ever-increasing problem with theft and vandalism of the infrastructure on the property, incurring huge expenses as a result, not mentioning security concerns for our residents and persons on our property.
The adjacent wetland area has become an unnecessary burden and cost, as it is subject to illegal squatting, dumping of waste and serving as a hideaway for criminals. We currently do not have the capacity or qualified manpower to patrol the wetland.
Movement around the dam, littering and poaching of water birds around the dam has also been reported. We have, for instance, received funding for a greenhouse but cannot erect it due to security concerns.
In fact, none of the envisioned projects can continue without securing the property.
