Potholes increasing, Residents repair roads


The past December saw a number of residents from various towns taking matters into their own hands and they decided to repair potholes.
Repairing a pothole is quite labour intensive.
In Secunda the Zello group, Secunda 911 was approached by a resident to help with the repair of the potholes. within a day the wheels were set in motion and bags of tar were purchased. Secunda 911 contacted Afriforum to assist and everyone was ready.
A few potholes were filled from the Sasol CBD Filling Station towards the Fire Station. The costs of repairing the potholes were about R200 per pothole.
If there are any other residents that have similar ideas, Roelof Gouws would be the person to contact. His phone number is 0725934052
Secunda 911 is a registered Non Profit Organisation
In eMzinoni, ANC Youth members from ward 24 decided to repair damaged paving. The paved road in eMzinoni was damaged during the heavy rains at the beginning of December. The youth repaired the road before Christmas.
Jabulani Masilela, Chairperson of the ANCYL (Ward 24) said: “We are trying to send a message to all the youth of Govan Mbeki Municipality that they should not always wait for the municipality but some things need the community to unify and meet the municipality halfway.”
