Concerns over state of access road to royal house

TAFELKOP – The Bolsheviks Party of South Africa (BPSA) has raised concerns about the state of the access road to one of the traditional leaders’ households in Elias Motsoaedi Local Municipality (EMLM).

The BPSA complained that all the access roads to the households of chiefs in Limpopo have been paved or tarred to make them more accessible except for the one leading to the household of Kgoshi Matsepe in Tafelkop outside Groblersdal.

According to the BPSA the road leading to Kgoshi Matsepe’s household in EMLM’S ward 25 needed attention from the local municipality as it was not in a good state.

The party said the traditional authority deserved to be treated the same as others within the local municipality.

However, Simon Makua, EMLM Spokesperson, thwarted the party’s claims and said that they were shocked as well as disappointed by the complaint.

Makua informed that EMLM constructed the Kgoshi Matsepe access road and storm water control system during the 2018/19 financial year.

“We are a government that works hand in hand with traditional leaders and produce excellent results in service delivery. Traditional leaders provide land and government’s responsibility is to bring infrastructural development,” added Makua.

Residents in the area agreed that there was an internal roads upgrade for ward 17 and ward 25 in the financial year 2018/19.

But they complained that the access road did not reach the traditional authority homestead as others.

“We agree that there was an internal roads project for ward 17 and ward 25 as the road cut through the two wards’ demarcation area. But we are concerned that it did not stretch to the royal house. What concerns us even more is that the access road to the royal house is not as lengthy as access roads to other royal houses that have been completed,” said a resident who spoke on condition of anonymity.

Makua informed that those access roads that lead directly into the yards of royal houses were efforts of the respective communities and not the government.
