After at least three children fell into the river at Tseki, Qwaqwa in the Free State, the Maluti-A-Phofung local municipality agreed to intervene.
OFM News reports that the main reason for the incidents is a bridge which is reportedly not in a good condition anymore.
Residents are calling upon the municipality to intervene. According to one of the residents, Ntsoaki Mofokeng, the bridge has been in this condition for too long now.
Ward councillor Mojalefa Naledi however says he is already working on it.
Naledi says the maintenance of the bridge is on his list of top priorities.
He told OFM News he would do anything to see the bridge in a good condition, to be safely used by residents.
