#PODCAST: Rydalvale Sports Grounds in Phoenix allegedly dug up for a transport depot

By Newsbreak Producer, Salma Patel - According to Vice President of the Phoenix Child Welfare, Sharm Maharaj - the iconic Rydalvale Sports Grounds at Phoenix, north of Durban, is being dug up to make way for a transport depot. This well-known landmark has hosted the suburb's biggest event - The Phoenix Child Welfare Community Fair - for the past 34 years where funds were raised to help maintain the upkeep of indigant families and children's shelters in the area. Maharaj says this is unacceptable that such a prominent and centrally-placed field is being affected without consultation with the community. He says an emergency meeting will be held with all community stakeholders at the youth centre at 6pm tonight to form a crisis committee .........
