PRETORIA - The City of Tshwane has indicated that its working on resolving the ongoing water crisis in Hamanskraal, after the Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse (Outa) found the drinking water was contaminated with E. coli and threatened legal action, demanding that the City act after the findings.
The SA Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) has also raised problems with the metro about the quality of Hammanskraal water.
Tshwane Mayor Steven Mokgalapa said he was aware of Outa's findings that the city is supplying Hammanskraal poor quality water.
He said they also welcomed the SAHRC's inquiry into the quality of water in the community.
"It is regrettable that the issue has invited negative sentiment from the public. However, the City refutes the assertion that residents are being supplied sub-standard water," Mokgalapa said.
