AfriForum established a launch committee in Lephalale/Ellisras on 8 February 2016 to spearhead the founding of an AfriForum branch in this town. This follows various incidents where the constitutional rights of residents were violated.
“It was impressive to see how the Lephalale/Ellisras community stood up and raised their hands willingly to make a difference in their community,” said Chris Boshoff, AfriForum’s Assistant Coordinator for Limpopo.
“We have received complaints about sewage spillage and broken pump stations. These are health risks that should be addressed immediately, and AfriForum is investigating these complaints,” Boshoff added.
The launch committee comprises Ettiene Rossouw (Chairman), Johannes du Preez (Vice-chairman), Vera du Preez (secretary), Chris Booysen (treasurer) and Andries de Ridder (additional member).
AfriForum requests residents of Lephalale/Ellisras to give AfriForum the mandate to launch actions against poor service delivery by sending an SMS with “ELLISRAS” to 45340 (R1 per SMS).
