WATER UPDATE:

THE BRAAKFONTEIN RESERVOIR DAMAGED PIPE HAS BEEN REPAIRED AND HAS BEGUN PUMPING WATER INTO THE RESERVOIRS. HOWEVER, THE WATER LEVELS AT THE RESERVOIRS WERE EXTREMELY LOW, AND THEREFORE IT WILL TAKE SOME TIME TO PUMP WATER TO THE NORMAL SUPPLY LEVELS.

THE MUNICIPALITY ESTIMATES THAT WATER SUPPLY WILL BE RESTORED AROUND 4AM, 25-01-2021 IN MADADENI AND OSIZWENI.

IN THE INTERIM WATER TANKERS HAVE BEEN DISPATCHED TO THE AFFECTED AREAS.

WE APOLOGIZE FOR THE INCONVENIENCE CAUSED. WE FURTHER APPRECIATE THE PATIENCE DISPLAYED BY MEMBERS OF THE COMMUNITY.

PLEASE KINDLY REFER TO THE RESERVOIRS PERCENTAGES BELOW FOR AN ACCURATE READING.

Azobuya nini vele amanzi?

Beningasho ngani kuthi nolungisa amapayipi nxiii

You mean one truck per 500 families with more then 6 members in each household and you call that service delivery? What in the hell is wrong with you people? Why are we being subjected to such nonsensical service delivery, don't you ever think of what we go through on a daily basis without water? How are we supposed to practice clean and safe sanitation or the least to just protect ourselves from the virus without water!? Nxn niyakwazi ukunyanyisa umuntu

Section 5 angikaze ngiyibone ngisho indlula. Mxm

Ishoni ngeke abuye maduzane. Ningasabi, kade naqala kusiphoxa.

Okay seyenzwa nigijima nesikhath a zophuma nini amanzi

Manje lishuthayo uzosebenza Nini esaphethe I phone🙄

Yin engaqhumisa le pipe ngempela...akeniyeke ukusifakela opoqo

Racing against time since 12am this morning. I think you just taking your own sweet time. We want water!!! We water our free 6kl also

Your work is highly appreciated

Clearly we need to plan towns that are resilient we cannot rely on one source of water as a town

Ukushintsha valve kungathatha isuku lonke??

Sizogeza ku eloise today noma ningayeka 🤣

Singakujabulela impela lokho siyizakhamizi.... akukho ngisho awokuphuza amanzi.

Zamani ukushesha lapho nina niyeke ukudlala lapho

Kazi kuzothatha isikhathi esingakanani ukulungisa

Hopefully nathi eLong homes we will get an essential delivery (water) from u guys it's been months not getting it 😠

Thnx for the update But safety precautions must be followed.

Proper maintenance on the pipes can avoid such problems unless it was the Operators fault who released too much pressure to the pipe.

Where were you all along as you come now and come late

Instead of chowing tax payers money there by municipal officers and actually getting your jobs done,making sure that state property is properly maintained we wouldn't be having this problem.this is just some sick public stunt there's no race here, we've been without water for almost a week now and that was before the actual pipe story came up. And please prepare us now what's the next issue maybe? Ngeke udodi ulandwe neh and what else oh you not gonna fix any roads anytime soon

Give me the job, I'm the Qualified Fitter with more than 8 years of experience working in the oil and gas industry, and mines. I can even perform rigging

Kaze Ramaphosa uyaz yin kuth nisivalela amanzi kusane pandemic 🤔

Sibonge baphathiswa

But thina ward 9 Osizweni asinawo amanzi almost everyday sicela ukwazi ukuthi ngabe elethu pipe lonakele or khona okunye,siyacela nisilungisele.

Why bring contractor to fix the pipe aint this work supposed to be done by uThukela water 🤔🤔🤔

Yekelani ukuPost iythombe la sifuna amanzi sonyiwe

Ngiyeza kulomndeni ngizoba ilunga kulezingane ezicisha imililo

Take all the time you need 😁

These pipes look real sketchy... notice how they are broken... they look to as if they were hit with a sharp object, but thats just my view. Could be wrong

Don't lie plz ,there is no water trucks ward 12 blaawubosc have

The water tanks really won't work for us . We in a middle of a pandemic and you guys want us to go play water wars by those tanks of yours that mind you never really show up and when they do some of us never know where they are stationed. Please give us the time and the location of the water tanks and also when we can expect to have running water again .

No water tankie in Madadeni

so inkinga yini ngoba ipipe i burst e bloemfantein not e newcastle

Kuhlale kungena manzi nje e Longhomes🙄🙄kulawa amanye amalanga or izinyanga kusuke kuqhume kuphi ke I Pipe🤷‍♀️🚮

LOL....eNewcastle kwaMaspala sekwasebenza o-Chauke bekhona abantu bendawo😁😁 Ngigeza izandla mina🤞

Hopefully the admin on this page reads the messages!!!!! Wonder hie many water tankers 🙉🙉🙉

No water osizwen longhomes everyday

Do not lie & say water trucks havd been dispatched here! There are no water tanks or trucks on site & on sight here I am in ward 11 Osizweni theres nothing! During the peak of stage 3 lockdown due to COVID-19 where we need to maintain explicit hygiene & wash our hands atleast every hour & in this heat, you are failing us. Very disappointing! You should have infirmrd us before cutting the water supply instead of an after thought. Please indicate when is the water expected to be back!

I think it time u guys admit that you have failed to run the municipality n give other people a chance

Mxm kwalawa ma water tank azoya kuba ngani benu nje nge asihambele sonke

Emadadeni nasoSizweni kuhlala abantu abakhuluma isizulu ngabe nibhalae ngesizulu lento yenu. Futhi lento yamanzi kade yaqala kuyashintshana if aksugesi amanzi if aksiwo amanzi ugesi from last mid november amanzi wona aWorse.

Mxm since Monday there's no water

Useless municipality In fact you've been useless from the day you tookover if we as Newcastle citizen we put you in power again clearly we will be fools

Where are the tankers u referring to

Cha i Corona soba nayo ngenkani masenihambisa amanzi nithi senzenjani vele

Poor ANC government 😔

Iyohhh

on site not on sight 🤔

It's been months now we don't have water supply at Long homes Osizweni n we've reported the issue but non has been done.

Two teams[a contractor and municipal technical team] on a Single burst pipes means paying two teams [Sunday's overtime and callout fee/rate] for fixing a single pipe. Oversimplified,I know True nonetheless

On the water issue. Section 5 Madadeni has water interruptions on a daily basis.

Please indicate where these trucks are? I find it very inconsiderate of you to say that you despatched water tanks to affected areas but not indicate where they'll be stationed at so as to help the citizens access the water... or have they only been sent to ANC Ward councillors to give water only to ANC members forgetting that the ANC got voted for by lay citizens who are not necessarily ANC members... Good luck to you in the next election🙄

Weeee😫

What about the water and lights bills? Making it so far high to supply electricity for more than half of the new building by leaving lights on 24/7 and it is completely vacant and not being used? Is that right?

Qhuba leadership kuhle

No water Manzana 2

Yes lovely please also tell the mayor to also “khawleza” at Osizweni Theku Plaza road I’m sure he is well aware that it’s bad. I’d like to advise that this operation prioritises the busy roads first for example the road going to Utrecht at Osizweni was fine and not that busy the road that needed more attention is the one mentioned above. 🤝
