The Executive Mayor of Rustenburg Local Municipality, Councilor Mpho Khunou had an exclusive interview on You FM’s Morning show with Pat Cash, talking about service delivery issues and mega projects that are currently being implemented in the City.
The Executive Mayor, gave an account of what the Municipality has been doing in the last 2 years to date to ensure that the City continues to easily access clean drinking water, with minimal to no supply interruptions. “We have noted with concern that we have received little joy, from the water services providers. We have already begun the process of increasing capacity of the Boospoort Water Treatment works, to ensure that our residents some of whom are located in the Greater Boitekong area, are able to have access to water uninterrupted” Mayor Khunou emphasized.
On the issue of refuse collection around Rustenburg, Executive Mayor acceded to the reality that there have been challenges which need to be resolved within the quickest turn-around time “we will be deploying two additional trucks to capacitate the fleet which is being used for refuse collection and it is our intention to ensure that by the end of April, the issue around waste-backlog would have been resolved and at that time, waste removal would no longer be challenge, as has been the case” Mayor Khunou concluded.
The Executive Mayor also fielded questions from the residents who had called in to ask him directly on issues which relate to services rendered to residents.
