The State Of Our Environment
The State Of Our Environment | December
December served up summer in spades,
delivering hot temperatures and yet another month of below
normal rainfall following a dry spring. As a result, water
levels remained relatively low across the region’s
waterways and also our aquifers. If you did manage to find
ample water to cool yourself down, you’ll be pleased to
know we’ve had good water quality overall at the
region’s popular bathing spots. Popular spots they could
remain if this weather continues so before you head out and
join the masses be sure to check out the HBRC website for
the latest sampling results.

South Africa: Death Of Nelson Mandela
South African President Jacob Zuma:
Our beloved Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela, the founding President of our democratic nation has departed. He passed on peacefully in the company of his family around 20h50 on the 5th of December 2013.
He is now resting. He is now at peace.
Our nation has lost its greatest son. Our people have lost a father. Although we knew that this day would come, nothing can diminish our sense of a profound and enduring loss.
His tireless struggle for freedom earned him the respect of the world. His humility, his compassion, and his humanity earned him their love. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Mandela family. To them we owe a debt of gratitude.
They have sacrificed much and endured much so that our people could be free. More>>
