Mafube Municipality confirmed that the pipe that draws water to their water purification plant has been damaged.
Spokesperson Sipho Radebe said their technical services have just informed them about the damage after the pipe was restored last night. Residents of Cornelia and Frankfort didn’t have water last night, due to a water pipe burst. Radebe added that municipal reservists managed to restore the water pipe that draws water from the Wilge River but they noticed this morning that the pipe was once again damaged.
“There are people on site trying to fix the problem and we promise the community that probably after lunch they will be receiving water. The matter is receiving very urgent attention as two towns are directly affected by the non-supply of water,” he said.
