AfriForum’s Margate branch, along with the Dutch Reformed Church Margate, have for the past few days used their borehole project to supply water to the community. This follows after the Ugu District Municipality once again neglected their duties by leaving the town without water for more than five days.
“We realised in 2018 already that the municipality keeps deteriorating and that we therefore had to act proactively. We launched the borehole project, with the Dutch Reformed Church in Margate, to step in in times of water shortages. We are glad that we could, thanks to the borehole, assist the community in this situation,” says Adolf Oosthuizen, Chairperson of AfriForum’s Margate branch.
“We see daily that the capture of essential state property and infrastructure increases – therefore it is extremely important for us to get our own emergency measures in place. We invite the community to become part of the solution and support this project,” says Eugene van Aswegen, AfriForum’s Provincial Coordinator for KwaZulu-Natal.
