Municipality promise water tanks for ward 31



By: Palesa Makanyane


The Mohlaletsi community chose a group of men from their community to stand on the ground and assist the area in reporting matters such as service delivery to officials.


According to a community member, Sekaa Hezekiel Mahlanya, this was done after realising that the community lacked many service delivery options, but officials were available during elections.


As a community member, they assigned villages in need of services such as water supply, and that is when they discovered Ga-Matsimele Village, where people fetch water from a river called Nokaneng.


He claims that the village is the poorest of all and that it is home to a large number of elderly people. The village of Ga-Matsimele had water.


“Ga-Matsimele village had water pipes, but they were ineffective because they did not provide water to the community. We’ve noticed that when road workers were fixing the road, they seemed to have broken the pipe, which is another step back for the community. We had to report it to Sekhukhune district Municipality,” Mahlanya explained.


He went on to say that they had a meeting about the water crisis a few days ago in Lethole, Ga-Matsimele. The meeting was supposed to include official guests such as the MMC for water and infrastructure, LED manager MR Malatje, Municipal manager and Councillor Mashabela Nelson Mphage. Unfortunately, the MMC could not attend the meeting.


According to Mahlanya, the meeting was a success, but it was insufficient. Following a meeting with the people of Ga-Matsimela, it was decided that Sekhukhune district Municipality will provide four large JoJo tanks to the people of Matotomale, Ga-Mashabela, and Ga-Matsimela.


“We would like to thank the Councillor and everyone who volunteered to help their fellow community members by bringing the hidden information that our municipality failed to provide to the people,” Mahlanya said.
