A health disaster looms in Johannesburg as rubbish piles up all over the city due to the three-week go-slow and strike by Pikitup rubbish collectors.

A Democratic Alliance candidate in Malvern, Lucas Kunene, says he has seen rats running around the suburb as he canvasses. Flies and cockroaches also pose a problem.

DA health spokesperson in Gauteng Jack Bloom says the city has seen waste management strikes before and contingency plans with private contractors should have been in place.

Meanwhile, a cold, wet snap has hit parts of Gauteng, with Johannesburg’s maximum temperature predicted to hover around 15-degrees today.

Yesterday’s downpour flooded some streets in the CBD. Fog and mist also caused frustrating delays at the OR Tambo International Airport yesterday morning.
