AfriForum to spend R1.1 million on potholes

AfriForum launched a self-do action on Monday 9 May 2016 during which R1.1 million will be spent on repairing a number of potholes in various towns across Limpopo and Mpumalanga.

This action forms part of the civil rights organisation’s pothole awareness month from 9 to 31 May 2016. AfriForum has already placed various municipalities on terms to repair potholes in these provinces, but many municipalities have ignored these demands.

“AfriForum has appointed contractors to repair potholes in those towns where the municipalities did not respond to the organisation’s demands.

All repair costs will be recovered from the municipalities themselves,” said Hein Gonzales, AfriForum’s Provincial Coordinator for Mpumalanga and Media Statement Hein Gonzales, Hillel Coetzer, Johann Weber en Chris Boshoff Limpopo.

There are municipalities who have reacted positively to the demands and plan on repairing potholes in cooperation with AfriForum.

“We are in favour of cooperation agreements with municipalities to ensure that tax payers receive the necessary service delivery,” Gonzales concluded. Become involved in your local AfriForum branch by sending an SMS with “GAT” to 35450 for Mpumalanga, or “GAT” to 45340 for Limpopo. Each SMS costs R1.
