MEC Masike Intervenes to Sort out the Moses Kotane Hospital Sewage System
The North West MEC for Health, Dr Magome Masike has appointed a team of managers to sort out the sewage system at the Moses Kotane Hospital. The sewage collapsed earlier this year leading to leakage of unclean water flowing to the street.
The District Management intervened by among others contracting a truck which was used to collect the sewage waste and pump it into the Moses Kotane Local Municipality sewage plant. The Department of Public Works also assisted in this regard by providing their sewage trucks. The above are however temporary measures.
As a long term solution, the entire sewage system will need to be fixed. I have instructed our Infrastructure and Capital Planning Unit to follow up this matter by holding the service provider who did the initial work accountable. The service provider should get back on site to rectify the mistakes and fix the sewage system at Moses Kotane Hospital, said MEC Dr Magome Masike
The Head of Department have proceeded to engage with Public Works for continued support with their trucks to suck the sewage and dispose the waste at the Moses Kotane Local Municipality sewage plant. The MEC will also engage with the Mayor of Moses Kotane Local Municipality to allow their sewage plant to be used until the contractor finishes the work on-site.
