Sekutlong is a small village that has been here for a long time. The village has been drinking water from the river.This river is is polluted by Acid Mine Drainage and makes the community suffer.
The municipality use to deliver water around the village but now they stopped doing this even though the river water is not clean. They created taps that goes with meter number, but it just a picture cause it doesn’t supply us with anything.
We as community now we buy water from the trucks and some of the families don’t have money to buy that water and are forced to the polluted river. By Tokelo Mahlakwane
