With the assistance of three employees from Sekhukhune district municipality.
, residents in Tswaing, Kgwaring and Khulwane were on the ground fixing a burst pipeline.
According to the affected community members they have suffered over three months without getting water from their taps not knowing what the problem was.
Until the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) intervened and wanted to know why other sections are getting water from the taps and other sections are not.
While the party was doing ups and downs they were tipped off that the pipe was burst by a known people who wanted to introduce new contractor to deliver water tankers to the affected residents.
“This was pure sabotage from our understanding. They wanted to use water tankers projects to fund their campaign during these elections,” said one of the residents who were on the ground.
They said after they discovered the problem they then took matters into their own hands lucky enough the EFF called the responsible office which delegated its employees to fix it.
But while fixing the pipe, district employees insisted that the pipe was scrapped and had received a lot of pressure after it was compact.
In response residents said the employees statement was an insult to them as they found human graphics where the pipe was scratched.
“We don’t have water. We can’t even bath. And obviously we will stink. We are subjected as subhuman,” said a pension responding on how this water crisis has affected them.
She said before the pipe was burst they were also getting unpurified water from the taps.
Sunnyboy Molobela on behalf of the community gave thanks to the members of the EFF for their intervention adding that if it was not for them the problem wouldn’t be discovered and the pipe wouldn’t be fixed.
Molobela said water crisis continues to be on spotlight throughout their area.
