AfriForum erects emergency water point in Vryheid

The AfriForum branch in Vryheid erected an emergency water point to supply water to the community during water interruptions. The Abaqulusi Local Municipality frequently lets residents down as far as water supply is concerned due to pumps and water pipes breaking.

“Frequent water interruptions forced us to erect an emergency water point to assist our community during water interruptions. We cannot understand why these pumps are so defective. AfriForum offered its assistance to the Municipality without success and that is why we erected this water point,” says André van der Walt, Chairperson of AfriForum’s Vryheid branch.

“We daily see how the infrastructure in KwaZulu-Natal is deteriorating and AfriForum is disappointed that the Municipality does not want to accept the community’s help. We can solve problems together. If not, our AfriForum branches will become involved themselves and make other possibilities available,” says Eugene van Aswegen, AfriForum’s District Coordinator for KwaZulu-Natal.

AfriForum’s Vryheid branch would like to thank the following sponsors that helped make this project possible: TWK, Vryheid Build It, Vryheid Afrimat and Hein Schonborn.
