Service Delivery Petition – Matjhabeng Municipality



The Matjhabeng Community has had enough of service delivery problems. The latest water cutoff left the whole community without water for more than 4 days in an area with a high Covid-19 infection rate as well as the over the festive season. We are asking for public participation of the community to submit a request to Parliament for intervention in Matjhabeng.

Baahi ba Matjhabeng babile le mathata alekaneng mabapi editshebeletso, Motlakase, Potholes le Metsi. Ho kgaolwa ha phepelo ya Metsi, kgetlong lena hoile hasiya baahi basena phepelo ya Metsi matsatsi amane, sebakeng seo honang lenyoloho ekgolo ya Covid-19. Rekopa setjhaba honka karolo hokenya kopo Palamenteng hokena dipakeng.

Section 56 (d) and 69 (d) of the Constitution provides for the National Assembly and the National Council of Provinces to receive petitions, representations or submissions from any interested persons or institutions.

A petition is a formal request to Parliament for intervention in a matter. It can take the form of either a request for assistance with a specific issue or for the redress of a grievance.

Basic services in Matjhabeng have deteriorated to such an extent that the health and safety of residents and their livelihoods are threatened. We call on the Minister of local government to investigate why a once-thriving city has fallen into disrepair and filth.

1) Constant electrical outages caused by lack of maintenance, illegal connections, and incorrect or unlawful disconnections.

2) Extended electrical outages that are caused by a lack of non-payment to Eskom.

3) Water outages caused by lack of maintenance, management of reservoir levels, and incorrect or illegal cutoffs as well as the non-payment of Sedibeng Water.

4) Burst Water pipes caused by a lack of maintenance of the pipes and pressure control valves.

5) Broken streetlights caused by lack of maintenance and nonpayment to contractors.

6) Irregular refuse collection caused by the lack of plant equipment and appointment of ill-equipped contractors.

7) Non-maintenance of the road infrastructure in Matjhabeng.

Ditshebeletso tsa bohlokwa kahara Matjhabeng ditlasa kgatello hoo ebileng bophelo le polokeho ya setjhaba lemaphelo abona aleng tlokotsing. Rekopa minister wa local government afuputse hore kehobaneng teropo ekileng yatswela pele,ewele ebile editshila.

5) Mabone a strateng arobehileng kabaka lahose kgathalle, le hose patalwe hadi kontraka.

6) Hose phutwe hamatlakala.

7) Hose lokiswe haditsela Matjhabeng.

For too long, Matjhabeng Municipality has been neglected. We, the residents, call on the Municipality to be accountable, deliver better services, and maintain and upgrade the infrastructure in our community.
