The Rustenburg Local Municipality (RLM) has recently received complaints from the residents of Zinniaville, Tlhabane, and greater Boitekong areas regarding water quality.
The municipality would like to inform residents that our Water Services Unit has deployed technicians at different sites taking samples from different supply zones and have discovered that some discoloration in the water was caused by pipe bursts in the network. This has been addressed by flushing the system.
However, municipal water boards have been notified and reports regarding their water quality will be issued and made available. The test results from samples that have been taken from the different zones will also be made available.
For further enquiries kindly contact Mr. Andrew Seome on 014 590 3525/3111 or 082 717 4374.

Municipal Court is ultimately launched and operational

Residents of Rustenburg will be delighted to learn that once again their Municipality has in the interest of enhancing quality service delivery and bringing services closer to them, has officially launched the Municipality Court on Monday, 3rd April 2017, based at the Public Safety offices, near Tlhabane Township.
This successful service delivery project is a collaborative effort between Rustenburg Local Municipality, Department of Justice and National Prosecuting Authority (NPA), wherein a memorandum of agreement has been signed, resulting in the Department of Justice dedicating a Magistrate to preside over matters, pertaining to violation of traffic laws and Municipal By-Laws.
The court was supposed to have opened earlier, in January or February this year, but had to delay a bit as systems had to be put in place first after renovations of the building itself, such as, a detailed court roll had to be developed, personnel had to be sourced and deployed.
“We are excited about this latest service delivery development, as done purely to the benefit of our people, for their convenience in terms of close proximity and having their Municipal related matters resolved quickly, as opposed to them being heard at conventional courts. This is another step forward in developing Rustenburg into a fully- fledged metro and world class city”, remarked Executive Mayor, Cllr Mpho Khunou, during the launch.
