DEPARTMENT of Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs MEC Nomusa Dube-Ncube met the disgruntled community members of KwaNokweja and Mazabekweni in Ixopo on Tuesday.

Community members in the area have been protesting for better services, like clean running water, since last week and, during her visit, Dube-Ncube called on them to stop their protest action saying that government would be tackling their needs.

“As government, we take the concerns of our communities very serous. The implementation of the Nokweja Bulk Water Scheme project is important and we will be spending R40 million on the project,” she said.

She added that water tanks will be installed in both villages to supply water to villagers.

She condemned the violent nature of service delivery protests in the area and promised to follow up on the water project.
