Bloem Water heads to High Court in battle against Mangaung Metro

The battle between the Bloem Water Board and the troubled Mangaung Metro Municipality (MMM) continued yesterday in the Free State High Court.

Spokesperson, Kido Thoabala, confirms that the water board is taking the metro to the High Court over a dispute over a debt owed by the Metro. The dispute between the two arises from the inability of the metro to settle its debt running into millions of rands.  OFM News previously reported that the metro allegedly owes at least R449 million to the water board.

Earlier this month, the High Court in Bloemfontein once again ruled in favour of the beleaguered metro against the Bloem Water board, instructing them to discontinue the reduced water supply.
