Politics

Bloemfontein - Residents of Matlakeng in Zastron, Free State, marched to the Mohokare municipality's offices on Wednesday to demand water, the Democratic Alliance said.

“The... municipality was supposed to ensure that this right was upheld, but this was not the case here,” DA Free State leader Patricia Kopane said.

Kopane handed over a memorandum to the municipality demanding answers as to why Matlakeng residents were struggling to access water daily.

“They have been struggling for more than five months.”

The DA leader said residents were forced to walk long distances to get water from town.

Kopane asked the municipality whether they could show residents any concrete plans about what they would do to alleviate water shortages.

The DA urged the municipality to release its strategy and action plan on water to the community.

An official received the memorandum on the municipality's behalf.
