Dirty water delivery mars Bloempoort

BLOEMPOORT – The Bolsheviks Party of South Africa (BPSA) has ventilated disappointment at Sekhukhune District Municipality (SDM) after water trucks recently supplied dirty water to drought stricken residents of Bloempoort in Dennilton outside Groblersdal.

BPSA said it wished to raise its disappointment in relation to what it described as a violation of human rights by the district municipality.

Seun Mogotji, BPSA leader, said the trucks delivered the dirty water on Tuesday 26 May 2020, which left the community wondering if the water was for gardening purposes or consumption.

“This is the water we just received from the trucks sent by the municipality. We are not sure whether they brought us the water for gardens or we should drink it,” said one of the residents in an audio sent to the paper moments after the delivery of the water.

Mogotji said his party wanted to indicate that the matter was not of playing party politics but purely defending human rights and dignity that were highly violated by the district municipality.

“The Bolsheviks Party of South Africa on behalf of the residents of Bloempoort wonders if the municipality is still in denial regarding the violation of rights of the helpless people,” said Mogotji.

Moloko Moloto, SDM Communications Manager, said the problem was that one of the trucks sent by Lepelle Northern Water, an implementing agent of the Department of Human Settlements, Water and Sanitation, was not cleaned.

“That is where the problem emanated. We apologise to the residents of Bloempoort on the matter. We advise the residents to use the water in question for other purposes such as gardening. However, the water from the other trucks had no problem,” said Moloto.
