He said the premier had briefed him on various projects in the pipeline including water, road infrastructure and the reconstruction of the bridge.

“We heard all your concerns and I am proud to announce that work on the reconstruction of the bridge will start on the 21st of September. Other residents also informed us on the quality of water. This will be attended to because everyone has the right to access clean water,” said Ramaphosa.

Resident, Pearl Nkosi, said she hopes the president would keep all the promises he made to the community.
“I am not happy with service delivery around this place and there is a lot of crime that affects us as the community. Although I believe him, we will just have to wait and see.”
