Thousands of people from Makgophong in Zebediela have expressed their concern over water shortage in their area.
The community said since they experienced scarcity of water since 2018 when the municipality installed water tanks.
Residents of the area said the Capricorn district municipality installed water tanks but they never refill the tanks.
He said they are pleading with the district municipality to assist them because many residents have opted to get water from a nearby river.
The municipal spokesperson, Jabu Masondo, said the municipality always fills up the water tanks, but the issue is with community members who obstruct the water through illegal connections.
