The aim is to provide drinking water to more than 23 000 households in the village and is part of a R140 million plan to eradicate water shortages in the area.

“We’re bringing water to you to restore your dignity and ensure that every household has access to clean water. Water is a very important commodity, but is also a very scarce resource that must be preserved,” said Modise.

Senior Traditional Leader of the Bahurutshe Ba Ga Moiloa Boo Ramotshere Traditional Authority, Kgosi Keobusitse Israel Moiloa, said the project should assist to resuscitate the agriculture projects, which had collapsed due to lack of water.
