Residents cry disservice

MASAKANENG – Residents of Maskaneng Portion 13 outside Groblersdal within Elias Motsoaledi Local Municipality are crying disservice by authorities.

The community is fuming and up in arms against the authorities as they accuse them of neglecting them with regard to services.

Among their concerns is electricity supply which they claim the local municipality only electrified a small portion of the area and left over 700 households without electricity.

The residents accuse the local municipality of allegedly making claims that Masakaneng Portion 13 has been electrified while they maintain that is not the case.

The other issue of concern, according to residents, is that of 410 Masakaneng learners who were moved from Aquaville Combined School to Maskaneng, allegedly only to be crammed into eight shack classrooms and subjected to use pit toilets.

The residents informed that the shack classrooms were erected by concerned parents whose children had to walk long distances to Aquaville, through unsafe bushes, a situation which posed a serious danger to them, especially during rainy seasons with the spate of kidnappings across the country.

The parents called for the needed to add Grades 10 to 12 because the nearest high school was in Motetema Township and unemployed parents could not afford transport money for their children to the township, which led to others dropping out of school after Grade 9.

The concerned residents added that lack of adequate drinking water was another huge problem for the poor community.

They access water from water tankers provided by the municipality but those tankers, residents claim that they are not consistent and not reliable as they don’t come most of the time, leaving people to buy water for an amount of R50 per small drum.
