Chronic water shortages in the Sekhukhune district continue to top the list of service delivery concerns for residents.

Speaking to Capricorn FM News during the handover of a road project in Ga-Manoke outside Burgersfort on Monday, residents said welcomed and appreciated the tar road however, emphasised that they need water.

Mayor of the Fetakgomo-Tubatse Local Municipality Eddie Maila handed over the 3-kilometre road at a cost of R23 million, saying phase two of the road is currently at 99% completion and will be handed over to the community soon.

Maila says there are still eight projects, including electrification projects which will be handed over in the 2024/2025 financial year, saying the Integrated Development Plan and Budget for the past 3 years has been drafted to address service delivery challenges.

The residents say they have been buying water, which is expensive, because most of them are unemployed and survive on social grants.
