Water Sanitation Minister Senzo Mchunu met with the Lebalelo Water Users Association to hear about the progress of the proposals made with the ministry to improve the water supply from the DeHoop Dam to the relevant communities.
The meeting followed a presentation by the Association to the Ministers who demanded equal involvement in this sector, and the Ministers proposed to work with the Government to make joint proposals.
Presented by the Deputy Director of Infrastructure of the Motebele Moshodi Bureau, the new association will incorporate the provision of safety to the dam through a resource partnership between the Bureau and the private sector.
Mr. Moshody said the proposed plan would also provide opportunities for socio-economic development in the Sekhune district, including skills development in construction, water, roads and tourism.
The Minister previously visited the Dehoop Dam to assess the progress of the dam’s water supply and associated projects.
He welcomed the proposal and urged the team to work quickly to complete the project and bring water to the community. I have repeatedly stated that this is a top priority.
Employees from various districts of the state were also present, including the Sekhukhune district, where the De Hoop dam is located, the Elias Motsoaledi and Capricorn municipalities, and the City pf Polokwane, which greatly benefits from the proposed plan.
There was also a representative from Leper Northern Water, who was crucial in this arrangement.
Minister Mutunu also said a political steering committee on water would be set up to address various water and sanitation projects around the state, led by the Prime Minister.
