What we have seen over the few weeks or even a few months, service delivery is a big concern in South Africa. Service delivery is poor in our communities and some residents don’t even have the basic facilities such as running water, electricity or a house to stay and still making use of the bucket system.
What we have recently witnessed is communities standing together and protests over the poor conditions they have to live in. These protests took place all over South Africa and were very hot news stories .We recently celebrated 18 years of democracy and still there is people living in these conditions.
That’s why I decided to start the Municipality Watchdog “Your voice is Power”. The purpose of this watchdog is to keep a close eye on service delivery in local municipalities in South Africa and to hold our government accountable. We would like to hear from you, please forward any information, comments or pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org.We would like to compile a report to see what the needs is in our communities, we will then present our report to the government departments and get their views on this issues. You can alternately visit our website at www.municipality-watchdog.co.za.
