Takatso M started this petition to Alfred Nzo Municipality and the South African Government and

There is a big problem with the water supply in Matatiele, Mpharane village and surrounding areas. This area is under the Alfred Nzo Municipality.

Residents were given Jojo tanks, however the tanks have never been filled with water and their taps never have running water, this is unacceptable. We are in the middle of a pandemic and it is disappointing that villagers are still getting no water supply from the government and they are still expected to survive. This has been an ongoing problem for years now and it is very unfair that nothing is being done about it. May something please be done in this area as many people are suffering because of the incompetence of officials that are meant to ensure that the people are well taken are of and their basic needs are met. The few that can afford, are able to buy water and each water tank is R500 minimum. The rest who cannot afford are at a big disadvantage. The Bill of Rights states that everyone has a right to health care, food, water and social security. This is a violation of that right because residents do not have access to water. They are human beings and they are not being given a basic right, which needs attention immediately. We just want to ensure that the villagers are well taken care of and we are concerned about their well being. 

We are demanding change.
