Chaos at Greenhills cemetery

The Greenhills Cemetery is once again falling victim of decay.

The Greenhills cemetery apparently is in shambles once again and has now turned into an illegal dumping site where local residents have been spotted dumping their rubbish in black refuse bags.

This comes from a previous Randfontein resident Cindy Kritzinger who was at the cemetery on 16 March to visit her late father’s grave and was surprised to spot men driving into the cemetery only to dump bags of rubbish into a skip on the premises.

“It is disgusting to see local residents dumping their rubbish at a place where dead people are resting.

“However, what is more disturbing is the fact that the municipality has abondoned the cemetery.

“This is evident in the grass that is standing taller than the graves themselves and I strongly believe that somebody needs to do something about this,” says Kritzinger who adds that finding her father’s grave was a mission on the day.

The Herald has contacted municipal spokesperson Lucky Chiya who says that he will contact the relevant department responsible for the parks and cemeteries in Randfontein and will revert back with comment at a later stage.

Meanwhile, residents who wish to visit their loved ones will have no choice but to navigate their way through the tall grass and rubbish.
