Welcome to the Mpumalanga Provincial Government

Minister of Water and Environmental Affairs, Mrs BEE Molewa and Premier DD Mabuza Public Participation Programme in Bushbuckridge

06 June 2011

Minister Edna Molewa and Premier David Mabuza will be engaging the community to discuss water related issues on Sunday, 12 June 2011 at Shatale Sports Field in Bushbuckridge Local Municipality. 

The Minister and the Premier will report on progress made in addressing the water provision problems. As part of the programme for the day, Minister Molewa and Premier Mabuza will handover two packaged plants in Loueiville in Nkomazi Local Municipality and also do the sod turning for the second phase of the Acornhoek Bulk pipeline in Shatale in the Bushbuckridge Local Municipality. The community engagement will take place at the Shatale Sports Ground in Shatale, Bushbuckridge Local Municipality

The package plants will benefit about 6000 households in the Louieville area under the Lomshiyo Traditional Authority. The community depended on an irrigation canal as their water supply for drinking and domestic use and this contributed to the outbreak of water borne diseases like cholera. The package plants will ensure that the community has access to clean and healthy water.

The Acornhoek bulk pipeline is aimed at addressing the water challenge in the Bushbuckridge Local Municipality. The pipeline will supply domestic water to the community of Bushbuckridge from the Inyaka Dam. The pipeline will ensure that about 95 villages in the Bushbuckridge Local Municipality have access to clean water.
