Apathy threat in Dikgalaopeng over poor service delivery

DIKGALAOPENG – Dikgalaopeng Villagers in Elias Motsoaledi Local Municipality’s Ward 25 are threatening to boycott the upcoming general elections.

Residents say they will not go to the polls because of poor service delivery such as lack of clean drinkable water, poor conditions of roads, shortage of schools and incomplete RDP units.

Maswane Mohlala, a community leader, said that they hoped the situation would change when Elias Motsaoledi Local Municipality Mayor Cllr Julia Mathebe, visited the area in June last year during a mayoral Imbizo.

“We raised our concerns and were promised our challenges would be resolved but nothing happened. The mayor promised to re-gravel our roads and said she would be taking other issues including shortage of schools and water to relevant departments, we are still in vain waiting for her response,” said Mohlala.

He further said some RDP houses were left incomplete by the contractor and no one was given a clear answer about the problem.

“The mayor promised to hand over the contractor who will be completing the 12 houses that were left half done. It is almost a year now and no contractor has been handed over by Mathebe since last year. Service delivery is pathetic here,” added Mohlala.

The community leader indicated that they approached Sekhukhune District Municipality (SDM) to complain about water scarcity in the village.

“We had meetings with MMC for Infrastructure Mbusi Mahlangu who also promised to come to our village but he never visit.

The residents threatened that if their concerns were not addresses before the upcoming elections on May 08, they were boycott the elections in their area.
