Randwater started choking Hartbeespoort water

According to an agreement between Madibeng and Randwater this cut was only supposed to take place on Friday if Madibeng failed to make a payment on their outstanding account but an official from Randwater decided to cut the water supply today.

Leon Basson, shadow minister of the DA to the Department of Water and Sanitation, is currently negotiating with the department to restore the water supply to the affected areas. Erna Rossouw, DA councillor for the affective wards, earlier reported that the water supply from Randwater is supposed to be 3000 kPa but is currently shut down.

According to information Madibeng owes Randwater R24 mil and has failed to make any arrangements for payments. Kormorant will publish updates as soon as additional information becomes available.
