Chabalabala’s family had to buy water from people around the village so that they can use during the preparation at the funeral after the ward councillor of Ward 21 Mr Nkuna Thomas and Mogalakwena municipality failed to supply them with water as they had promised, most villages in Mogalakwena municipality do not have water supply they only depend on water tankers from the municipality and during funerals municipality do supply water to the grieving families but this time around the family of Chabalabala were left stranded, when they called the ward councillor, the phone was not answered.
2 hours after burial the municipality brought to the family but unfortunately it was returned back as there was no use for that water.
