Matatiele residents have taps but no water

MATATIELE - Matatiele residents have taps but no water.

Residents in the area say the councillors have been promising them water but their promises are running dry.

Millions have been spent since 2010 yet thousands are still collecting water from unhygienic sources.

One community member said, “we do not have water here, I have even forgotten the date, and day even the month, when we were promised water by our councillor."

"He first said on 15 June we will have water."

"To date, we have not received anything, there are only two taps that have water down there. On this side, we have no water, we have to get it from this Dam."
