DA Leader John Steenhuisen to present solutions on eMalahleni, Doornkop’s ongoing water crises

15th October 2021

Tomorrow, 16 October 2021, DA Leader, John Steenhuisen MP will present a workable solution to the water crisis in Mpumalanga while on the campaign trail in the eMalahleni and Steve Tshwete Local Municipalities.

Steenhuisen will be joined by, DA Leader in Mpumalanga, Jane Sithole MPL, DA Mayoral Candidate in Steve Tshwete Local Municipality, Bosman Grobler MPL, DA National Spokesperson Siviwe Gwarube MP and DA Activists.

For nine years the DA in eMalahleni has proposed that the ANC government redo the water supply network, and for 15 years the very same ANC government has failed to supply water consistently to the residents of Doornkop.

In both municipalities the water interruptions are largely due to poor maintenance of the existing infrastructure, including old pipes bursting, cable theft and non-existent service delivery.
