Water supply benefits the chosen few

Community Alerts/ Nthabiseng Leshoe/ Dominionville- North West/ 22 November 2016


Dominionville has a problem when it comes to water, this problem started the day the water was disconnected from the mines pipelines. The matlosana local municipality has been the one supplying the dominionville residence with water. They do this by using water trucks; however it is alleged that the truck drivers are using favouritism in executing their duties. The favouritism manifests itself when a single member of the community who is not evens a leader directly phoning the truck driver to personally supply the chosen few with the water. My argument is that, water is a common good and has to be accessible to all people in the community. The matter will be raised to the Matlosana local municipality.
