After Tshwane informal settlements budget was set for reduction over their water service delivery and more, Action SA sought to fight the adjustment.
The Coalition parties promised to challenge the decision to have millions reduced from the service delivery, mainly on their water services. Water tankers had received a proposal budget of R98 million and reduced to R20 million. Relocation to new informal settlement set for R278 million reduced to R0.
After the vow from Herman Mashaba to fight the adjustment to suit the residents and those affected by floods, he returned with the following. “We are proud to announce that the Tshwane adjustment budget has passed after a number of important accommodations were made at the last minute by the multi-party coalition.
We are pleased that victories have been secured for the residents of Tshwane.” Said ActionSA leader Herman Mashaba
The accommodations include:
– R20 million further funding for the provision of services to informal settlements to provide water & sanitation.
– An increase to the budget available for relocating informal settlements, with the budgeted funds available effectively doubling.
– Ensure the completion of an investigation into the award of the tender for phase 1 of the Rooiwal Wastewater Treat Plant upgrade
– The aggressive scale-up of funding for phase 2 of the Rooiwal Wastewater Treatment Plan upgrade for the next financial year beginning
– The multi-party coalition have provided written assurances in respect of the acquisition of land for the Mamelodi Flood Victims.
Currently Tshwane along with the coalition parties, are on a mission to better the service delivery in Tshwane and to certify the needs of residents are met in a speed.
