The topic has come up before on the Love Knysna Facebook and, apparently, in more detail on Knysna Gossip Girls’ Facebook [now renamed Knysna Golden Girls] where Councillor Eleanore Spies allegedly said she was going to get answers but didn’t.
What is this weed killer called? What is its composition? How many tons are used per year?
Why hasn’t a councillor or SANParks initiated this topic?
If it’s safe, then explain why and let’s move on. For now, these images do nothing to make us feel that our environment is being protected. It doesn’t look to be in the spirit of Naturally Knysna.
Update April 21 2017 – Knysna Estuary Pollution: Eleanore Spies promised answers over 2 years ago but, as far as i know, they never arrived, not even after she became Mayor of Knysna. If anyone can correct me, or knows more about the poisoning of our estuary, please contact me or comment on Facebook. I’m hoping this practice has been stopped, replaced with a better option that can be detailed to us.
