If you want to have a great city then you need to have public open space. And what more beautiful and unique public open space can you get than the beautiful Witwatersrand Ridges? So don't build on them, keep them for a future city for all. They will enhance Mogale City like Table Mountain does for Cape Town, a beautiful wild place in the city.
I lived in Krugersdorp ...actually Weltevredenpark near Chamdor the Loius Luyt Brewery..nw SAB...and walked a great deal in this area which is precious to wildlife and future citizens..
How sad to consider the extinction of another species.
Support my cause please
Save these endangered sites, soon we shall have nothing left!
Please sign the petition to save the Eagles nesting site from being bulldozed by idiot humans.
WE need to look at the Ridge Policy which forms part of the Environmental Policy from 1989 and sub amendments. Other ridges are being threatened by development too, such as the Rietfontein Ridge which is a conservancy and the home of Free Me Wildlife Rehab centre. Please oppose the extension of the K60 road through the Nature Reserve.
The old saying. .if it ain't broken why fix it. Why? Do greedy people with plenty of money want to spoil the natural environment for more gain and more money and spoil everything for the working class people like you and me . How do they sleep at night.
The Public Protector should be asked to intervene to protect the public from municipal officials who grant permission for developments in wetlands and other ecologically sensitive areas - because they are only interested in the higher rates they earn once the land is developed.
Please support this cause, there are fewer and fewer areas where people have not taken over - this area needs to be left for the wildlife, its their natural habitat; Please leave it that way.
