Water projects handed over to communities

SEKHUKHUNE – Sekhukhune District Municipality (SDM), which serves a water authority in the district, has last week handed over two water projects to communities in Fetakgomo Tubatse and Makhuduthamaga local municipalities.

On Friday, the water authority officially commissioned a water package plant and a steel reservoir in Jane Furse RDP section within Makhuduthamaga Local Municipality.

The municipality’s commissioning of the water package plant and steel reservoir in the area is expected to supply over 1000 households with water through standpipes connected into yards.

During the handover ceremony which was presided by MMC Mbusi Mahlangu, Lorraine Manganeng and Council Speaker Maria Manamela and Chip Whif Maleke Mokganyetji, the district municipality pleaded with members of the community not to allow anyone to vandalise the water service infrastructure.

Meanwhile, on the same day, the district’s water authority which is faced with a huge challenge of water services, handed over another water service project in Fetakgomo Tubatse to ensure that the residents of Phahlamanoge, Masehleng and Sefateng villages have access to portable water.

Council Speaker Manamela, MMC Peter Mnisi together with Kgoshi Phahlamohlaka, Phogole a Moraswi, chaired the project’s handover ceremony which is expected to provide the three villages with sustainable water.

The district municipality, which has been marred by fierce protests in various areas over water services, said the communal tap system, with over 50 standpipes, spread across the three villages of Pahlamanoge, Sefateng and Masehleng.

The Infrastructure and Water Services Department (IWS) was allocated the lion’s share of the budget at R531 million. This amounts to 48 percent of the total operating expenditure.
