Today, 04 September 2015, the DA will deliver full water tanks to the residents of Stoking and surrounding villages in the Blouberg Municipality.
Ward 13 residents had been living without water for more than two weeks as the municipality is busy repairing old water pipes. No temporary plans had been made to provide water in the meantime.
The DA’s attempts to request the Mayor Sammy Selamolela to provide the residents with water tanks as an interim measure fell on the deaf ears.
Due to the municipality’s failure, the DA will be delivering water to the community and save them from travelling more than six kilometres pushing wheelbarrow in the scorching heat to get water.
Date: Friday, 04 September 2015
Venue: Stoking Sports ground (Blouberg Municipality)
There will be an opportunity for photographs and interviews
