Cable theft cause of water crisis

Cable theft cause of water crisis
MLM working hard to resolve the problem

Some residents were left without water since the late hours of Thursday evening 3 September. This water crisis was due to cable theft on a main power line that supplies power to the Water Treatment Works.

Water tankers had to be sent out to supply water to the affected areas while workers of the Mkhondo Local Municipality worked tirelessly to repair the power lines again and solve the water crisis. 

All residents are urged to report any useful information regarding this theft to the SAPS. It is an extremely dangerous exercise, which you could pay for with your life.

Thank you to the MLM for their hard work to ensure that water returned to residents’ taps.
