They did a door-to-door campaign in the area with NEC members, putting forth a heap of promises.

Mpumalanga ANC acting secretary Lindiwe Ntshalintshali has said that an announced R14 million water project in Moloto village will ease the suffering that the people of the village have been enduring.

The people will now get water in their home taps.

She spoke on the sidelines of the party’s Thuma Mina campaign in the Thembisile Hani municipality village.

Ntshalintshali said the government was building a dam and also drilling boreholes that would supply water to the homes.

“We are here on a door-to-door campaign and to respond to the issues raised by the residents in terms of water scarcity,” she said.

The people of the Moloto village and surrounding areas have been forced to live without water and buying them from fellow residents who have drilled boreholes in their homes for a very long time.

“The ANC-led government has re-directed R14 million to drill boreholes and to deal with the issue of the dam.

“This is because if you don’t have water, it’s a bit of a challenge,” she told African News Agency.

ANC leaders in Moloto on Saturday also handed over a new two bedroom house to an elderly Samson Nkosi and his wife Sarah Manganyi.

The two old lovers lost everything in September 2018 when their shack was destroyed by fire.

“We are happy and thankful to the ANC for this house,” said Manganyi.
