PHUTHADITJHABA. – Vusi Tshabalala, executive mayor of the Maluti-a-Phofung (MAP) Local Municipality, together with Members of the Mayoral Committee (MMCs), MAP water officials and some members of the Water Disaster Joint Operation Centre (JOC), recently visited the water abstraction point at Bluegumbosch, Qwaqwa.

This was to monitor trucks used to deliver water to different areas in the municipality. Another purpose was to implement improved water distribution management by the water trucks by branding them with stickers clearly displaying specific zones in order to identify the area the truck will be delivering water to.

During his visit, the executive mayor engaged and motivated the drivers to boost their morale while doing their work.

“The stickers will help our communities to know and identify the trucks that will deliver water to their respective areas. We want to thank the Department of Water and Sanitation for the number of trucks that they have donated to us to help in increasing the number we have. We believe that they will help us in making sure that people get water at all times,” Tshabalala said.

Masetjhaba Lakaje-Mosia, the MMC responsible for children, women and people living with disabilities, concluded the inspection and zoning of trucks event.

“We are proud of our entity, MAP Water, and the JOC. They are trying everything they can to see to it that we always have water during this challenging time. I want to encourage them to keep up the good work,” Lakaje-Mosia said.

Linda Mokoena, one of the drivers, said they would do their best to make sure that the community received water.

“I thank the mayor, who came to motivate us. It shows that we are doing good work,” Mokoena said.
