The Congress of South African Trade Union in Limpop has welcomed interventions in the water crisis in Giyani. 

Minister of Water and Sanitation Nomvula Mokonyane made a decision to take away the water provision powers from Mopani District Municipality in Limpopo with immediate effect. 

Cosatu Provincial Secretary Gerald Mkhomazi Twala said it is unacceptable that 20 years into democracy our people are still crying for water. 

Twala added that it is in good news that the minister has instructed the Lepelle Northern Water Board to assume the responsibility of supplying water in the Giyani area.

“It has always been our plague that it cannot be that our communities are still crying for water in 20 years of our democracy

In the same breath, we also welcome the announcement that the minister allocated R62 million to revitalize water sources, including maintaining boreholes and water pipe lines at more than 50 villages in the area before the end of September 2014.” Twala said.
