Water shortages a concern to Praktiseer residents

The taps had been dry in Praktiseer’s Ext 2 for the past three months. This has led to residents buying water from those who own boreholes. A 20 litre container is reportedly costing R2.
According to one of the residents Mr Ephraim Nkwana, the poor are left with no choice but to get water from the nearby Tubatse River.
“Our problem started when a truck which was installing VIP toilets destroyed water pipes in the village. We reported the matter to our councillors and the Sekhukhune District Municipality but we were told to fix the pipes ourselves”
Nkwana said they are struggling to get services in their village. “It’s so sad that our government is failing us, water is a necessity. It’s just difficult to survive without a single drop.”
According to Nkwana, a huge water tank was erected in their village back in 2016. It was earmarked to curb water problems in the area.
“The tank remains a white elephant; it was never used to distribute water to the people”
Queries regarding this matter were directed to the Sekhukhune District Municipality’ spokesperson Willy Mosoma , at the time of going to print he was yet to respond
