Water from the river smells like “Jik”

Tokelo/ Sekutlong Community at Limpopo (S.C.M.A.C)

We have been drinking water from Motse River  that is polluted by the mine acid drainage Twickenham. As the result we experience diarrhea. The municipality started the water supply project after that they failed to finished the project.

We are really risking our healthy to drink this water and our government does not care about our health. And we are sure about this water has been fetched from Tubatse river because they are not clean at all.
