Condolences for the late Dr Ruth Segomotsi Mompati - Executive Mayor

It is with pain and sorrow that I take this moment to express my condolences on behalf of the entire Council, staff and all residents of Rustenburg on the death of our liberation icon, Dr Ruth Segomotsi Mompati, affectionately known as Mama Ruta, who passed on Tuesday, 12thMay 2015.

I want to say to her family that their loss is our loss, it is not only the loss of the North West province but the entire South African nation. The freedom we enjoy in our country today is attributed to the role she played so significantly because of the values she subscribed to and stood for.

The power system remains constrained

The power system remains constrained. Should we experience any further technical problems, Eskom may need to implement load shedding and/or load curtailment.

Please switch off all non-essential equipment. We appeal to all to participate in the demand response to avoid having to declare an emergency or invoke load shedding and/or load curtailment.


Loadshedding Stage ! declared. RLM will loadshed immediately as requested by Eskom. Inconvenience regret.
