Johannesburg - Water in Thaba Chweu in Mpumalanga is safe for drinking despite the municipality failing to achieve Blue Drop status, said an independent analyst on Wednesday.

"I see no reason that can make people panic," said Mbolamed Laboratory and Medical Services owner Victor Mashego.

"I would like to take this opportunity to tell the people that their lives are not in danger, as the media and the report cited last week."

Municipal spokesperson Themba Sibiya agreed.

"The water is drinkable and there is no need to panic," he said.

    Witbank's water has been undrinkable for years! Why does this not repeatedly make the news until something is done to rectify this situation?

    The E coli levels in the Sabi river are still very high? What area are they talking about, I thought Thaba Thweu was the Sabie area? The sewage works have been putting untreated sewage in the river for years now, and government refuses to take action.
