According to a  Pomeroy resident, Andrew Jhilmeet, said the community was tired of raising the same issue with nothing done.

“For the past four years we have been submitting memorandums and protesting over the same issue, but we still don’t have water.”

“The local (Msinga) and district (Umzimyathi) municipalities must account. The mayor must also be held accountable and demand that the co-operative governance & traditional affairs (Cogta) MEC comes to address us on the way forward.”
