Moutse Bulk Water supply project’s implementation well underway – SDM

MOUTSE – Sekhukhune District Municipality (SDM) has informed that the implementation of the Moutse Bulk Water supply project was proceeding well and that stakeholders were getting monthly reports on its progress.

 This after the Bolsheviks Party of South Africa (BPSA), an opposition in Sekhukhune District Municipality Council, last week demanded that the project be diverted to Lepelle Northern Water (LNW) as an implementing agent.

The BPSA alleged that after a letter was written to Sekhukhune District Municipality on 09 March 2020 regarding the completion of the project, there had been no response from the SDM.

The party accused SDM of appearing not to be in a state where the need for services for the people was taken seriously.

BPSA said that left Sekhukhune thirsty and it appeared that the district municipality did not have a plan to quench the thirst of the communities as the bulk water supply project in the area had been on a standstill for years, awaiting completion.

However, Willy Mosoma, SDM Spokesperson, said the project had since its inception, been implemented by LNW and that as the water service authority, the district municipality had a seamless approach towards the project’s implementation, working together with the Department of Water Services and LNW.

Mosoma said therefore, the district municipality referred to the utterances by “these third force operatives who thrive on cheap claims, as pure political gymnastics.”

Last week, Seun Mogotji, BPSA leader, said the intervention of the Minister of Human Settlements, Water and Sanitation, Lindiwe Sisulu, was highly needed in that regard.

Mogotji said they requested the minister to move the project and its budget to Lepelle Northern Water as an implementing agent because the district municipality appeared to be failing dismally in that highly needed initiative.

“The Moutse Bulk Water supply project has been long awaited by the communities of Moutse and the project, which was supposed to have been completed a few years ago, has seen people of Moutse without water supply for a very long time.

The project, which is in phases according to the project manager, is nearing completion and is at 91 percent,” said Mogotji.
