Executive Mayor LA Koloi

Theme: The year of OR Tambo: Women united in moving South Africa forward
Iam Limakatso Koloi the Executive Mayor of the Dawid Kruiper municipality.
This years women’s month celebration coincides with the centenary of struggle icon OR Tambo.
It takes place against a backdrop of an increase in the levels of violence and brutality against women and children in our society.
It takes place during trying economic times. Invariably, women will be most affected by the economic decline and bear the brunt of its resultant negative economic and social effects.
In spite of all the challenges, the Dawid Kruiper municipality remains committed to the empowerment of women. We have employed women in various levels of the municipality. Women councillors have been elected and some of them are heading critical committees in the municipality. The Mayoral committee consist of seven members and five of them are women.

I also want to pay tribute to the women in churches, business, housewives, mothers, women from all professions and walks of life.

I wish all the women well during the women’s month.

A number of enquiries have been made around the reservoir in Keidebees. Keidebees is a residential area in Upington. The Dawid Kruiper municipality was inundated with enquiries around the water which is pumped from the reservoir. We want to put the public and the community at ease by explaining what is happening at the reservoir.

The development at the reservoir is normal maintenance work which is taking place in all the water systems throughout the country.

The Keidebees reservoir is fitted with a floating roof, which is nearing the end of its useful life. This roof became torn, allowing the ingress of foreign matter into the reservoir. This renders the water unsuitable for human consumption. This reservoir was, as a precautionary measure, taken out of operation for the needed repair works.

The municipality had to source, and appoint, the sole supplier of this roofing material (which is a special type of membrane) to effect the repair work

During this process the reservoir complex needed to be isolated from the rest of the distribution network. However it was found that some of the shut off valves were leaking through and this resulted in the reservoir still accumulating some water and this water needed to be drained from time to time.
