Kinross councillors finally give feedback to locals about municipal issues

Mr Ben Mokola (councillor) addresses residents at Kinross Sasol Club.

KINROSS – Local councillors, Ms Irene Masuku, Mr Ben Makola, Mr Dan Nhlapho and Ms Rose Nkabide, held a meeting with residents of Kinross on Thursday, 24 August to give feedback on service delivery in the area.

Mr Mokola said the challenge is that the department is not using the performance management system for its intended role in which informed decisions over under-performance is made.

He said most of the locals do not buy electricity from municipal official vendors, some steal electricity through bridging and others buy from illegal vendors.

This leads to the municipality suffering a loss and results in poor service delivery.

He said the municipality is intending to install new smart meters to avoid electricity losses.

“Service delivery will improve once most of the community members are honouring their services accounts. Please support the smart meter readings and report illegal connectors and vendors.”

Mr Mokola said despite the challenges, the municipality prides itself on managing to respond to the requests of the community.

“Trees in Ella Street were cut as per your request and the potholes in the middle of the four-way stop in Kinross was repaired.

“Potholes on the road to Trichardt were also patched and Biskop Farm was supplied with water.”

Locals welcomed the report and requested the councillors to meet with them more often.
