Municipality revamps its client’s service

As part of its continuous long term program to inculcate the culture of payment for services among its residents, the Rustenburg Local Municipality has developed an integrated, comprehensive and yet realistic plan to ensure total customer satisfaction as residents meet their monthly obligation to pay for the services they receive from the municipality. 
The plan includes amongst others the following:

Project Dignity

Project Dignity is a project aimed at providing sanitary towels to disadvantaged schools especially farm schools.  It was a shocking and disturbing discovery that most girls who are in their puberty phase skip school or miss school during the time they are on their periods.  Girls have been found to be using toilet paper, newspaper, bandages, and other disturbing unsanitary items, a lack of sanitary supplies available to them and leads to many girls missing out on important lessons at schools and a high level of absenteeism in schools as a result.


The Rustenburg Local Municipality hereby informs residents of Monakato Extensions of the planned water supply interruption on Tuesday, 19th August 2014. The interruption is necessary, as there will be cleaning of Monakato reservoir by Magalies Water which supplies water to these areas. The interruption is anticipated to last from 07:00 until 14:00pm. During this period consumers will experience low water pressure or have no water at all.

Municipality commemorates Madiba

Following President Jacob Zuma’s marching orders in his second State of the Nation Address for 2014 recently, wherein he ordered the nation to ensure that South Africa is cleaned on the 18th July in commemoration of the late world icon, Nelson Mandela, the Rustenburg Local Municipality duly embarked on a series of activities in various Wards in heeding the call.
