Post Script to Imfula Revisited

We have just received these pics from Kirsten Oliver showing the inundation of 4x4s and off road motor cycles that we mentioned in the blog post this weekend.

The area upstream of Inanda Dam in the Valley of a Thousand Hills is their playground.

About Nikki Brighton

I live in Howick, between the river and the hills. I enjoy pre-dawn walks in the streets with my dog, sitting on the veranda with crochet and tea, and harvesting vegetables outside the kitchen door.

    Hi Nikki,

    Is it not worth appealing to the Department of Environmental Affairs for a blanket ban on 4x4ing a certain number of metres from a river bank? Similar to the beach ban that has been so effective. I know it’s difficult to police but with so many people living in close proximity to the river, especially the uMngeni River, there is the opportunity of tip-offs and community whistle-blowing.

    Keep up the great work!!!

    Best regards,

    Gary

  2. Is it not time for environment NGOs to make a joint and unanimous call for taxes to be levied on all 4X4 drivers at petrol stations, so that a national fund for reparations can be raised and managed by NGOS, for such excessive carbon emissions, and for reparation projects in the environment.

    Driving a 4X4 in this current era, with the knowledge of how close we are to climate chaos, is like chain smoking after a diagnosis of lung cancer.
