The rural residents of Ngomankulu in Nkandla in northern KwaZulu-Natal finally have access to clean tap water after living all their lives dependent on a river.

This after SABC broadcast a story recently about the residents having to walk long distances or used donkeys to fetch water from the Nsuze River. The rural village is a few kilometres from President Jacob Zuma’s private residence.

Uthungulu District Municipal Mayor Thembeka Mchunu says villagers can now get water from water tanks located within easy reach of their homes.

“The community of Ngomankulu in ward 11 in Nkandla had a problem with water supply, our pumps and water plants were no longer pumping enough water for them. As an intervention we had to put Jojo tanks and then supply water with water tankers whilst we are waiting for the bulk infrastructure to come closer to them.”

Mchunu adds: “At the end of the whole phase we want all the community of Uthungulu to get water from the pipes, which is what we are currently doing. We hope that in the near future they will be getting that water.”
