The DWA and DEA have been busy: they’re batting our email from one person to the next while they try to find someone to answer the questions.
The Water Affairs DG’s office passes the query on to Anet Muir, the acting Chief Director for compliance monitoring, the ‘manager for regulation of fracking with regard to the protection of the water resource’. When I follow up, her phone rings and rings.
An email from Environmental Affairs pops into my inbox, only a month after I first dropped them a line:
As I read, I am thinking that the department needs someone to copy check their letters as a few typos and grammatical errors have slipped through.
There is zip from the Department of Minerals and Energy though. The voicemails of the two assistants whose numbers I have been given are clogged up with old undeleted messages. It won’t let me leave a voicemail.
