An urgent court interdict that the Masilonyana Municipality had filed against the DA, to stop supplying water to Brandfort residents, is just “ANC tactics”.

This is according to DA leader in the Free State, Patricia Kopane. She was speaking at the Bloemfontein High Court on Thursday, after Judge Jordaan dismissed the application.

Kopane said they were pleased with the outcome of the judgment and they will be continuing providing residents with water.

“It has been clear today that this matter is just the tactics of the ANC to try and discredit the Democratic Alliance. We started providing residents with water since 201. The people were very happy and nobody got sick from that water. What the municipality was trying to do, was nonsense. I am happy that the case has been taken off the roll and the municipality will be paying for all legal costs.”
