Countless litres of fresh drinking water goes down the storm drainage in Chief Moroka Road in Rocklands from a burst pipe in front of the Tebelelo Primary School in ward 14 of the Mangaung Metro Municipality. The water seeping from underground has been running freely down the street for over two weeks, despite the situation having been reported to the municipality numerous times. The cash-strapped metro’s debt to Bloem Water stood at R1,1 billion before a discount was announced in November last year.  Photo: Teboho Setena
