Masakaneng march for services

MASAKANENG – Residents of Masakaneng outside Groblersdal embarked on a service delivery march to the Elias Motsoaledi Local Municipality (EMLM) offices on Monday, 25 October.

The residents from portion 69 of the settlement complain about sectional development and that other portions of the area were not receiving basic amenities such as water, electricity and proper roads.

They wanted the municipality to move speedily in attending to their service delivery challenges they have been faced with for years.

According to the residents several attempts were made to get the municipality to act on their challenges in the past but to no avail.

“All we get is promises that are not delivered on and we are sick and tired of the conditions that we are subjected to in this area. We are totally ignored when it comes to service delivery in this area. People still don’t have water, electricity and the conditions of the roads are bad. We need the local municipality to attend to this matter urgently,” said the residents.

They peacefully marched to the offices of EMLM offices in Groblersdal on Monday to hand over their memorandum of demands.

Elias Motsoaledi Local Municipality spokesperson, Simon Makua, confirmed that the local municipality received a memorandum from some members of the community from Masakaneng portion 69.

Makua said the area’s portion belonged to trustees of Masakaneng Trust who were owners of the property.

“The electrification of Masakaneng has been budgeted for, the design has been procured and we are just waiting for a consent letter from the rightful owners to implement the electrification project,” said Makua.

He concluded that the memorandum received on Monday would be handed over to new council to deal with the issue of mediation between the trust and the community.
