UPDATE: Regarding black flow at the Hawaan Forest servitude, the eThekwini Municipality Pollution Department confirm that the substance is not oil and have traced the black slush back to Gunda Cresent where drilling for water is taking place.

Please note that the EThekwini Municipality Pollution Department have been called in to investigate the black flow coming out at the Hawaan Forest servitude. As the liquid doesn’t have a smell, it is suspected to most likely be water darkened by shale and not oil. We will keep the public informed once investigations have been completed.
