Masakaneng residents express satisfaction after meeting local mayor, Mathebe

Deejay Ledwaba, a community leader, said they were happy that the local mayor finally honoured a meeting with them to listen to their concerns.

Ledwaba said they were promised that the electrification project of the area would soon resume and was envisaged for completion on 26 March 2019.

“They promised us another visit before 26 March to assess progress in the electrification of the portion which has already had some households electrified. The committee will soon meet with the contractor for the electrification project. On the issues of roads, water, schools and other amenities, they promised they will also be look into and give us a report back. The issue of the cemetery they said will be address in the next financial year, starting in July,” said Ledwaba.
