Burgersfort, Ledingwe

By: Palesa Makanyane

Ledingwe is the smallest village in between mountains in Burgersfort which lacks service delivery. The village has always lacked proper service deliveries along with job opportunities and this is according to community members.

One of the residence explained how the gravel road is making it difficult to get in/out of the village.

“Although the gravel road is not a problem most of the time, we are used to it, but it becomes a nightmare during rainy days. The struggle of driving through the mud and this mostly force us to wait at Ga-Phasha until the rain cools down because our cars might get stuck in mud,” said Daniel Molepo.

Meanwhile this is not the only issue that is bothering the people of Ledingwe, they have been struggling with water supply for years until mid-last year when most of the taps were connected.  However some of the residence told Sekhukhune Times about the alleged illegal water connections happening around the village. They claim other residence have connected water pipes from the main pipes going straight to their yards, this ends up affecting the supply of water to the public taps.

Ward Councilor Abraham Sabetha highlighted that they are aware of the challenges the village is facing with regards to service delivery and the illegal water connections and they are working tirelessly to alter this extensive matter.

“We have reported the matter to Councilor Maisela; however, I wish our people can have a little patience because everything works with budget. In the meantime, we plead with Ledingwe residence to report any matter affecting the village and we will assist where we can,” Abraham said.

The ward councilor further said the problem with people is their selfishness and the unwillingness to help each other save the village. He said he will report this matter once more to the officials.
