Transfer of lighting project mars Ntwane villagers

NTWANE – Lengkwaneng and Lesehleng Sections in Ntwane Village were initially earmarked for the R666 000.00 worth of high mast lights project.

Elias Motsoaledi Local Municipality Council allegedly decided to spend R650 000-00 for the shifting of the two high mast lights to other areas. This the residents claim the local municipality did without their proper consultation.

According to the fuming residents, construction of the project had already begun when the decision to shift the project to another area was taken.

The villagers allege the local municipality explained to them that the area initially earmarked for the project had few households, hence the transfer of it to another area.

Seun Mogotji, Bolsheviks Party of South Africa leader, said transfer of the project to another area was considered unlawful, fruitless and wasteful expenditure.

“The R650 000-00 to move the project to another part of Ntwane will be almost the same amount of R666 000-00 allocated for the erection of the project,” fumed Mogotji.

Mogotji said two more high mast lights could have been acquired with the money directed towards the shifting process.

The leader added the shifting of the project was viewed as part of the ruling party’s political tool to gather support for next year’s elections.

“It is clear the municipality is using the taxpayers’ money to campaign for the coming. This is sabotage to communities that are in favour of opposition parties.

Simon Makua, EMLM Communications Officer, said they could not comment at this stage before they could gather facts on matter.
