Premier Makhura has missed the bus on Hammanskraal water issue - Tshwane MMC

Gauteng Premier David Makhura visited the Hammanskraal purification plant in Tswhane following complaints that the water is not clean.

The residents allege that Tshwane metro has failed to provide them with clean water and administer measures aimed at ensuring that their right to water is realised.

Premier Makhura is trying to catch the bus that has already passed the bus stop. As we indicated before we are in the process of commissioning a water purification plant.

We are days away from completing that project. When we spoke to the residents last week, they indicated that the process we had introduced is starting to get better.

Let us understand that there has been a colour problem, a smell problem and a taste problem with the water and we are fully aware of that. The water is not in anyway unsafe to drink. It has no biological or bacteriological components that are unsafe for human consumption.

However, the Gauteng MEC for Human Settlements, Uhuru Moiloa, says they cannot be a happy city if more than 30 000 people are unhappy.

I don't know where the MMC is coming from. If the people are drinking water and are saying that the water doesn't taste as the water that he drinks every morning from his house, that water can't definitely be correct.

Uhuru Moiloa, Gauteng MEC for Human Settlements

The truth here is that there is a spillage in the dam where we tap water for purification.

Uhuru Moiloa, Gauteng MEC for Human Settlements

This is unacceptable and doesn't need an explanation as to why our people can't have access to clean water.
