- A number of local business owners have slammed municipal workers
- Sibiya denied the allegation that he had built a house as well over water pipes
Local residents are concerned that the municipality preaches water conservation but fails to respond to leaky pipes in a timely manner.
According to members of the community, municipal workers previously attended the issue, but it remains unresolved.
A number of local business owners have slammed municipal workers for not attending to the matter since it affects their area of business.
According to Jane, who runs a bunny chow business, the water flow prevents her from expanding Kota business.
As a result, she finds it difficult to create shade for customers while they wait for orders because the space for shelter is always wet. Chauke, a salon owner nearby, is also bothered by the waste of water despite the fact that water is a vital need.
Councillor Sithole of Ward 34 stated recently that the pipe bust was known and they were working on it. The property, however, will need to be removed since it is built over the pipeline.

According to Mr. Sibiya, the owner of that liquor establishment, he was told to remove his tavern so they could fix the pipe.
Furthermore, he denied the allegation that he had built a house as well over water pipes. In addition, he said we would not move if asked.
