'Mangaung water is safe and drinkable'

Mangaung municipality spokesperson Qondile Khedama says the province is comfortable with the water it is supplying to the residents.

This after concerns were raised over the quality of water in the metropolitan, where some people have reportedly fallen sick.

Khedama says the municipality is conducting daily tests on the water and there was nothing untoward detectable.

"Nothing was detected that makes the water not drinkable"

Qondile Khedama, Mangaung municipality spokesperson

Khedama says they have received concerns that the water has been brown. He says the colour change in the water was caused at the reservoir when they stored water for longer periods due to the drought. He further says that at Soutpan they dispensed water tankers when they got reports of the contamination.

We warned people to boil water before using it. As of this morning, we are comfortable, the water is drinkable, safe and hygienic.

Qondile Khedama, Mangaung municipality spokesperson

Khedama believes the Democratic Alliance is trying to score political points with the water issue and the municipality is comfortable and satisfied with the water standard.
