Toilets for two Glen Cowie cemeteries and Makaepea Primary School

GLEN COWIE – Sekhukhune Executive Mayor, Stanley Ramaila handed over two double toilets to two cemeteries in Glen-Cowie outside Jane Furse on Friday.

According to the Executive Mayor, the move to handover the toilets came after complaints from members of the community about lack of proper sanitation at cemeteries in the area.

Ramaila said following complaints he saw the need to provide assistance to residents to have toilets at cemeteries.

“We had complaints from residents in the area about the lack of toilets at cemeteries and sought help on how we can assist. We are happy that we were able to erect the structures at the cemeteries. We thank everyone who assisted in the erection of the structures,” said Ramaila.

The Executive Mayor said there was a serious need for toilets at most cemeteries in the district and pledged the municipality would do everything in its powers to assist communities.

“I would like to say that in my five years of office, most cemeteries would have toilets for people to use during the burials of their family members, relatives and friends,” added Ramaila.

The Executive Mayor was accompanied by Members of the Mayoral Committee for water and infrastructure Mbusi Mahlangu and Meta Manganeng together with municipal officials during the handover.

“This is part of the ‘Thuma Mina’ campaign launched by President Cyril Ramaphosa to provide help that will bring change and better lives of people,” added Ramaila.

Villagers and the tribal office thanked the district municipality for attending to their problem of lack of toilets at cemeteries and further encouraged the district municipality to reach out to more communities in ensuring the problem of lack of proper sanitation is addressed.

Meanwhile, Acting Sekhukhune District Municipality Executive Mayor, Mbusi Mahlangu welcomed Limpopo Education MEC, Ishmael Kgetjepe and Speaker of Limpopo Legislature, Polly Boshielo and Elias Motsoaledi Local Municipality Mayor, Julia Mathebe as they handed over toilets to Makaepea Primary School outside Groblersdal on Monday 10 September 2018.

The handover is part of Limpopo Department of Education’s drive to address sanitation backlog which has marred Limpopo schools for years.
