Bloemfontein – The Masilonyana Local Municipality in the Free State on Thursday lost a court bid to stop the Democratic Alliance from providing residents with water.The municipality argued on Thursday afternoon in the Free State High Court in Bloemfontein that the party breached the Water Service Act when they provided residents with water. "There is a possibility that the water might have been contaminated. Water that has been supplied needs to be tested and we wanted to stop future illness," said Advocate Luyanda Nyangiwe.Nyangiwe also argued that the party was providing water to vulnerable groups in the municipality."They are supplying water to young children," he said.However, representing the DA, Nick Ferreira said the municipality has always been aware of the party providing water.No evidence"The municipality knew since 2015 about the distribution of water and it is just pure speculation that there is anything wrong with the water. The water was provided from boreholes, so there is no risk," said Ferreira.The party also said it intervened to help the "most vulnerable" after they had gone without water for some time.Members of the DA danced and sang outside the high court on Thursday morning holding placards that read "Clean water".Judge Fouché Jordaan said there was no evidence that the water might have been contaminated."There is no evidence that there [was] any illness or results on health symptoms, therefore the case is dismissed with cost. The matter is removed from the roll."
