Government delivers only 16 of the 5,000 promised tankers to QwaQwa
The Department of Human Settlements, Water and Sanitation has failed to meet its deadline to deliver 5,000 water tanks to the Maluti-A-Phofung municipality in seven days.
The residents of QwaQwa had shut down the area about two weeks ago due to the chronic water shortages.
The department has asked for residents to the patient as they try to speed the process.
Eyewitness News reporter Bonga Dlulane has more.
The department says it has only delivered only 16 of those tankers but the spokesperson Sputnick Ratau was not very sure if it is the Jojo tanks or water tankers.Bonga Dlulane, Reporter - Eyewitness News
The interesting thing is that the government had set itself this deadline of a week last week when the minister visited. It seems they can't also meet their own deadline.Bonga Dlulane, Reporter - Eyewitness News
What is also frustrating for the residents there is that their municipality has been put under administration because of ineffectiveness and lack of service delivery.Bonga Dlulane, Reporter - Eyewitness News
