Community drinks dirty water with animals.


Services delivery such as basic needs including water seems to be major challenges to the Mashabela and Mohwelere communities. Dwellers collects water from a small well known river called Mohlakaneng.

Mohwelere occupant Sedume Sello told Sekhukhune Times, it is a shame to stand on a line to collect dirty water.

She said it is unacceptable to walks a distance to fetch basic needs such as water. “Every single day I had to take a 20 litre bucket to fetch dirty water to drink, cook and wash,” said Sedume.

A mother of six children added that she is very disappointed how municipality fails to deliver water in their area.

“Water is needy so we can’t survive without it. I don’t afford to buy water answered when asked why she is coming everyday to collect water at dam. This is how we live,” said unemployed mother.

Other residents from  Mahlakaseleng spoken out that since December they never had enough water. They said for the past two years nothing has changed.

“We are voting nevertheless people whom we put them on power do not care about us. It is politics of stomach. We are tired of living like slavers. How on earth must we drink water with animals? What is democracy? Where is it? We have been told about it for some donkey years ago. We don’t think we must claim it because we don’t have clean water. Without clean water we are nothing as community. Our Municipality disrespect us,” said residents.

Mahlakanaseleng residents said every day before their children go to school they had to come and collect water for their children to bath. “Our children named late comers at schools because of this major challenge of water crisis,” angry residents explained.
