Road blocked by community

WITPOORT — A road was blocked over the weekend in the Witpoort and Villa Nora SAPS areas by the community of Ga-Mocheko protesting against several unresolved issues.
Cllr Jack Maeko, Mayor of Lephalale, visited two villages that were involved in the issues.
He addressed all the issues raised at a meeting held earlier at Reabetswe and Ga-Mocheko.
He requested the community members work hand in hand with their leadership. He also said the protest was due to a lack of proper communication.
He said that the leaders who are supposed to convey information to the community, don’t share the information and use it for their own benefit. He promised the community members that all their requests (about service delivery) will be taken into consideration. Nothing was damaged during the protest and the meeting ended peacefully.
The protesters also promised the Mayor that they will clean the blocked road and remove the obstacles.
