By Thys Khiba – Premier Kaobitsa Bushy Maape announced, during his State of the Province Address (SOPA), the North West province will be retaining the Provincial War Room on water to deal with water challenges in the province.

“We are retaining the Provincial War Room on water which is part of the accelerated rapid service delivery approach we announced in 2022,” said Maape.

While, addressing members of the Provincial Legislature (MPL), Maape indicated that they have established a Steering Committee jointly with the Minister of Water and Sanitation, Senzo Mchunu.

By Thys Khiba - Premier Kaobitsa Bushy Maape announced, during his State of the Province Address (SOPA), the North West province will be retaining the Provincial War Room on water to deal with water challenges in the province.

The committee is expected to address water and sanitation challenges in the province.

The Steering Committee has developed a plan to deal with immediate water challenges, with priority being given to Ditsobotla, Naledi, Madibeng, Ramotshere Moiloa and others,” Maape said.

Meanwhile residents of the JB Marks Local Municipality have been protesting in connection with water supply challenges in their area.

On Thursday, the Plus MP in NCOP (North West), Fanie du Toitsaid the violent protest on the N12 highway and in the town area of Potchefstroom once again shows that the ANC is unfit to govern.

Residents of Potchefstroom in the JB Marks Local Municipality were confronted by violent protesters at about four o’clock yesterday afternoon.

The CBD was reportedly blocked by trucks, motorists were intimidated and stones were hurled at vehicles.

The N12 runs straight through Potchefstroom. These events were reportedly a continuation of a protest about service delivery on the N12, which started at Ikageng just outside the town earlier that day,” said du Toit.

The ongoing protest affected the movement of traffic jams on the N12.

The situation is unacceptable, and a shocking charge against the ANC-controlled Municipality.

The lack of proper service delivery and an apparent disregard for residents’ needs create a volatile situation where violence and disruption are at the order of the day.

According to Maape, through the Accelerated Service Delivery Plan, municipalities in the province are clearing illegal dumping sites.

In addition to his view about the impact of municipalities in the province, Maape suggested that they are constructing new high mast lights repairing existing ones, repairing damaged roads and addressing water and sewer challenges.

Residents will now have a chance to report interrupted and unavailable basic services using a mobile app.

“We are introducing a mobile App to enable members of the public to participate in fast tracking the reporting of instances where basic services are interrupted or unavailable.”
