Army to rescue the Vaal

The South African National Defence Force (SANDF) is expected to start deploying in the Vaal Triangle this coming weekend against a deepening national crisis of Vaal River system pollution.

Both local business and municipality have fully welcomed the stabilisation operation by the SANDF and promised their full support and cooperation. Here are some of the senior members of the SANDF with local stakeholders and members of the Golden Triangle Chamber of Commerce who attended a high level meeting of the chamber at Stonehaven last week.
