Seven million rand internal road opened in Lerome as part of Setsokotsane...

LEROME:  For the past two days Setsokotsane intensified service delivery in Lerome and Manamakgoteng near Moruleng in the Moses Kotane Local Municipality.

Amongst the many service delivery activities that Setsokotsane brought to Lerome was the official opening of the 1.8 km Lerome South Internal Road.

The R7.7 million project, which started in April 2015, was completed within a projected time.

Addressing community members at the official opening of the road, the Mayor of Moses Kotane Local Municipality, Cllr Fetsang Mokati said the government was serious about responding vigorously to community needs.

Mokati also spoke strongly about the burning of tyres on the roads, saying that it was counter-productive.

“We are today handing over the 1.8km paved internal road.  Should there be any dissatisfaction about any matter, let it not be on this road. Take care of this road; engage tribal authority and municipality to resolve any issues that you may have. We don’t want to see people burning tyres on this road. It is your road. If you preserve this road and other projects that we bring to this village, you will enable the government to bring more developments here and to other villages,” cautioned Mokati.

Mokati further urged community members to be part of Setsokotsane service delivery outreaches so that they could access government services within their reach.

Speaking in Manamakgoteng where Setsokotsane brought an array of services earlier today, Bojanala District Manager based in the Office of the Premier, Mr Abbey Khutwane said it was satisfying to see the way Moses Kotane residents have embraced Setsokotsane.

“The residents of Moses Kotane have welcomed Setsokotsane with both hands and are working with us to fast-track the delivery of government services and change lives for the better,” said Khutwane.

Khutwane said Setsokotsane will remain in Moses Kotane Local Municipality until 28 February 2016; thereafter it will take services to Kgetleng Rivier Local Municipality.
