FSM staff and working conditions in Johannesburg, SA

Hi,

My research is focused on fecal sludge management in India. I am curious how sludge is currently managed in Johannesburg, South Africa. My interest in South Africa is just to understand the role of race in the management of human waste. As you may know, in India, human waste is managed exclusively by a specific social class. In Johannesburg,South Africa, do people of color mostly do the job of managing human waste? How are the working conditions of sanitation workers in Johannesburg related to those of in India?

Any links to studies or organizations working on this issue are highly appreciated.
Best,
