Residents construct a man-made bridge after pleas fell on deaf ears

NTWANE– For many years, residents of Mabopane section in Ntwane Village in Moutse outside Groblersdal have been making several efforts to get the authorities to build them a bridge which will make the area accessible.

But the pleas of the rural residents fell on deaf ears as the relevant authorities showed no interest in building them the much needed bridge.

A group of elderly residents in the area, with the aim of helping themselves through their plight, as government failed to do so, initiated a Letsema to construct a bridge which crosses Koto River.

The residents collected huge stones from the mountains, arranged them orderly and put them tightly together to knit a man-made bridge to make their area accessible.

According to the residents the settlement over Koto River is rapidly growing and the learners at Nala School use the same unsafe path to access education on a daily basis.

“Vehicles in the area have no access, there even reports of loss of lives in the past at the spot where the Letsema initiated to construct a man-made bridge,” said the residents.

They said the man-made bridge they constricted was done after their outcry was not taken seriously by the local municipality which contributed only a tipper-truck which collected once or twice before it disappeared.

“Apparently, there will be a deliberations on a suggestion that every household in the area contribute a certain amount to purchasing of cements for the project,” said the residents.
