Acting Cogta MEC, Dr Sibongiseni Dhlomo, officially launched the multi-million rand Weza Water Treatment Plant project in the KwaJali area recently.

The community had been forced to compete with livestock to access clean water, making this project a necessity.

According to Dr Dhlomo, more than R15-million had been set aside for the project infrastructure.

“This is real development and people are extremely happy that they will now have access to clean water. We have restored their dignity and we will not rest until there is universal access to basic services in this province,” he said.

He mentioned that almost 90 percent of households in the province had access to clean water.

“This bears testimony to government’s commitment to providing a better life for all citizens,” he said.
