Northern suburbs to have water shortly



Residents in the northern suburbs of Bloemfontein, who have been without water since yesterday, should have running water by lunch today.

DA spokesperson Rossouw Botes says water problems arose on Monday due to a pump breaking at Maselspoort.

He explains the pump was repaired yesterday evening and residents of Heuwelsig and Hillsboro should have water by lunch if not earlier.

Mangaung Metropolitan Municipality spokesperson, Qondile Khedama could not be reached for comment.
