Used to live in lichtenburg, the water is turned off for most of the day, every day for many years now.
Not that there is a lack of water, the town is on top of a huge aquifer, the municipality is unable to maintain the pumps, and as soon as they replace the pumps there's copper theft.
There's water between 6 and 7am, and it comes on again from 7 to 8pm.
They also offered to fix the road themselves, but the municipality refused. Probably wanting some juicy tender bribes.
There's no hope for that shithole of a town, and it's the same story in 90% of NW towns. Potch had some hope with a stronger DA presence, but then they gerrymandered it together with Ventersdorp.

They're moving operations to Durban.
Yes, I'm surprised this story was even posted as it doesn't fit in with the usual narrative that all major businesses in South Africa have already closed or will soon close.

end result of all their bungling and incompetence
wait until VW or Toyota move out of SA, because the power and water service is dysfunctional due to theft and incompetance.
Unlikely as long as they continue to make good money in South Africa, which they do.

Hardcore lefties always embarrassing themselves...

--> don't ever bring up 'government failure'....
It's the sort of thing a lefty like Trump would say.

How long do we have to wait?

African mentality right here...

"We're busy running out of water."
"No problem yet, we still have water right?"
"Yes, but we'll be running out in 24 months"
"So we have water right"

/24 months later

"We're out of water"
"Damn white people and Jan always messing up this country"

Wake the fk up mate. These issues are being pointed out and need to be addressed. Don't stick your head in the sand pretending everything is fine...
It's fine that 330 people will lose their jobs and probably need to resort to crime now to feed their families. As long as it's not you it's fine... Ubuntu my ass...

if you want something you need to do it yourself.
