"We also focus on ensuring that the private sector and all spheres of government commit and work together to improve air quality. 

"We must step up our efforts that are aimed at cutting emission and cleaning up the air to communities, especially within our South Durban basin."

"We undertake to work with industries, communities of Jacobs, Wentworth, Bluff, Lamontville, Umlazi and the whole South Durban basin to find a long lasting solution to air pollution," says Dube-Ncube.
