Tjate heritage site is neglected


Tjate Authorities felt the Department of Economic Development, Environment and Tourism (LEDET), department of tourism(National) and Fetakgomo Tubatse local municipality has neglected their heritage site.

 Unsatisfied officials deems it is unfair for government to abandon cultural site for many years. 

Phineas Selahle, secretary of Tjate committee, said covid-19 pandemic negatively impacted pace of the development in the site.

He is firm that his committee would continue to engage with responsible sectors to ensure the implementations of development commence.

Meanwhile, Abram Kopotja, chairperson of Tjate Tribunal Authority, said it was an act of disrespect to overlook cultural places.

Despite allocated budget to develop Tjate heritage site, members of the community use their own budget to fix and develop the area, according to Kopotja

He said they can’t take it anymore and they wanted things to be materialised.

“Government set aside sum of approximately R1 million purposely for development but so far no one knows anything about it.

“But this time we want to warn them because last time they messed up and invested service delivery money into collapsed and liquated VBS mutual bank,” he warned.

Addressing other community issues, Kopotja accused Fetakgomo Tubatse Local municipality of corruption and nepotism.

He said in 2008 the municipality built a community hall, worth approximately thousands of rands or more.

But till to date, twelve years later, the hall does not have furniture nor electricity.

“Our grievances fallen into deaf ears because we submitted numerous memorandum to the municipality demanding services,” said Kopotja

He is confused due to the fact that the municipality draft IDP which didn’t fulfil.
