Public Potector Thuli Madonsela on Monday vowed to hold officials responsible following a sewage spill in Braamfischerville, Soweto.
On Monday, she visited the area to assess the situation.
The public protector was accompanied by officials from Johannesburg Water, the National Engineering Council and health inspectors.
The heat only served to heighten the stench of the raw sewage.
Resident Bonginkosi Boniso said the problem started back in 2004.
“This place is not suitable for people to live in.”
Madonsela said she was shocked by what she saw.
“We literally had to walk on the raw sewage. The children were also walking around.”
She said strong action will be taken if her office finds the people behind the maladministration.
