Residents want clarity on ward demarcations

KINROSS – Thistle Grove residents who used to fall under Ward 16, were surprised to hear that they no longer fall under Ms Rose Nkabinde, Councillor, anymore.

They were told they now fall under Ward 17 whose councillor is Mr Ben Makola.

This left residents speculating that part of Thistle Grove belongs to Ward 16 and another to Ward 17.

Some were concerned that Mr Makola lives in Evander which will make it difficult for him to attend to their problems.

“We used to have Mr Dan Nhlapo and when there was no electricity because of problems with the transformer, he used to help us and made sure it was fixed,” said a resident who was concerned about having a ward councillor who lives in another area.

Govan Mbeki Municipality was asked for clarity. They said that the left side when you enter at the side of the police station up to Gardenia and Fisant Street, is part of Ward 17 and the ward councillor is Mr Makola.

The right side of Thistle Grove falls under Ward 16 and the councillor is Ms Nkabinde.
