“It is not known what the Madibeng Municipality owes Randwater as no relevant municipal official seems to be available today. Suddenly all of the municipal leadership are in meetings,” said Hartbeespoort ward councillor Erna Rossouw. “None of them are answering their phones.”

The Kormorant also tried to get hold of the municipality but has received no reply to enquiries.

“Randwater had a payment agreement with the municipality since the previous water cut in April. The agreement has not been honoured and the supply was choked on Friday.

Randwater cut the water supply to Hartbeespoort in April after the municipality ignored a notice and warning from Randwater to pay its outstanding R5 million debt.

The Madibeng municipality received R58 million as part of its equitable share from national treasury on 22 March and was supposed to pay Randwater R10 million but only paid R5 million at the time.
