South Africa: Botshabelo Residents Still Awaiting Basic Services

press release

The IFP also discovered that some residents have to pay bribes to municipal workers in order to get their toilets emptied. This does not only promote corruption, but also allows for the exploitation of people's ignorance on what basic services are due to them.

"This situation begs the question of what the Ministerial Sanitation Task Team, led by Winnie Madikizela-Mandela has been doing in making sure that the bucket and pit toilet systems are eradicated? Clearly nothing." said Sithole.

The IFP calls on the Executive Mayor of Mangaung Metropolitan Municipality, Thabo Manyoni, MEC for the Department for Co operative Governance, Human settlements & Traditional affairs, Clifford Motsepe to intervene in solving these problems.
