Johannesburg - The Democratic Alliance would visit Mothutlung, near Brits in the North West, the party said on Sunday.

"DA parliamentary leader Lindiwe Mazibuko, provincial leader in the North West Chris Hattingh and member of parliament Winston Rabotapi will be conducting an oversight visit in Mothutlung on Monday," spokesperson Siviwe Gwarube said.

Residents of Mothutlung were without water for about two weeks.

During service delivery protests three people died.

Two protestors were shot dead, allegedly by police, on Monday during a service delivery protest.

Another man died after he allegedly fell out of a moving Nyala police armoured vehicle in a bid to escape.

"The DA delegation will be paying their respects to the families that have lost loved ones, as well as inspecting the purification plant that the water affairs minister, Edna Molewa, committed to fixing last week Friday," Gwarube said.

Colonel Sabata Mokgwabone said the protests ended on Thursday. Water was restored in the area on Friday, the premier's spokesperson Lesiba Kgwele said.

"Water has been restored in most parts of Mothutlung, the challenge is that people are watering their gardens which is affecting the supply of water to some areas," Kgwele said.

No violent incidents were reported in the area over the weekend, Mokgwabone said on Sunday morning.
