HAMMANSKRAAL RESIDENTS COMPLAINING ABOUT THE WATER CRISIS

The inhabitants of Hammanskraal, north of Pretoria said they were as yet exposed to malodorous and undrinkable water, years after City of Tshwane authorities vowed to intercede.

Last year, a criminological report by the city found that the framework at the Rooiwal wastewater treatment plant was not being kept up with and was overextended.

Irate occupants from Hammanskraal said they had now settled not to take care of their water bills until they get perfect, drinkable water.

Dumizulu Nkwanyana, one of the oppressed occupants said they feel disregarded after almost 20 years of water difficulties nearby.

"We are needing clean drinking water. They need to fix the Rooiwal treatment plant," he added.
