These boreholes, makes it possible for communities to access clean water in the villages. This is part of Joe Gqabi District Municipality’s Rural Water Supply Project for the 2023-2024 financial year. “Vandalism of municipal infrastructure delays government’s development programme of rendering quality services to our communities”, said Honourable Mayor Mposelwa. This is the first phase of the Joe Gqabi District Municipality and JOGEDA projects, of fulfilling it’s mandate of providing clean water as part of service delivery to communities. The three boreholes were installed with one tap each for community members. The district municipality’s plan is to install tab-lines in different yards for members of the communities. Solar panels are installed on the boreholes to pump water pressure easy. The areas are secured with cameras, barbed wires and electric fence for security reasons. The three projects have created jobs for the people of Thaleni, Makhatlanyeng and Westhoek villages.
