MOUTSE – Following threats to disrupt the multi-million rands Moutse Bulk Water Supply project last week, the Bolsheviks Party of South Africa came out guns blazing against such threats and called on people to act decisively against those behind the threats.
The party said the people of Moutse have been without water and were now eyeing every means that could help bring water. BPSA said it could not be tolerated that progress of a project intended to ensure people’s access to water is hindered.
Seun Mogotji, BPSA leader, said the water supply project in Lusaka in the area was stopped by people who didn’t have interests of communities at heart. Mogotji said the group stopped the project on unfounded reasons, and only to benefit certain individuals who are only interested in their businesses at the expense of adversely affected communities.
“We have learnt that there is a group of people who are intending to stop the operations of the Moutse Bulk Water Supply project, which is totally unacceptable and not in the interest of the people of Moutse but personal interests.
We are now calling on workers on the project, the Department of Water and Sanitation (DWS) and Sekhukhune District Municipality (SDM) to stop massaging the issue and see to it that there are interdictions towards whoever is intending to jeopardize the proceedings of the projects which is 95 percent complete.,” said Mogotji.
Mogotji further called upon the law enforcement agencies to attend to the matter on an urgent note and deal with the perpetrators.
“The community is avoiding direct confrontation with this group of thugs called forum. We request SAPS to intervene before the Moutse public is unleashed to deal with these hooligans that are not representing the community,” concluded Mogotji.
