Mphethi residents protest for better services from FTLM



Fed up residents of Maapea Mpheti in Ward 17 protested to the Fetakgomo Tubatse Local Municipality (FTLM) demanding better services on Friday. The residents were in solidarity with the members of the EFF in Tubatse. The group handed their memorandum of demands to the management at the FTLM

The residents indicated the municipality has done nothing to ensure acceleration of service delivery in their village.
Residents claimed for the past years, they had been without electricity, water and some of them have no homes.
“We feel neglected by our own municipality, the deny us our rights to have water and electricity,” said the residents
In their memorandum, they indicated. “In 2019, we submitted a list of households to be electrified, they were 360 homes. None of the houses was electrified. The number has doubled and we have about 700 homes that needs power,” said the protesters.
According to the protesters, they were not considered in the FTLM’s current Integrated Development Plan (IDP) budget.
The residents also seemed concerned about the lack of water in their community. “Since the borehole was stripped, we don’t have an alternative water supply. Not even a nearby river. We rely on buying water,” they complained. The memorandum was received by MM Mabelane, Head of development and planning at the FTLM.
The Maapea Mpheti residents and EFF gave the FTLM seven days to respond to the memorandum of demands.
