THE CHALLENGES OF SUPPLYING TSHWANE CITIZENS WITH ELECTRICITY AND WATER
Speaker: Darryl Moss, Councillor, City of Tshwane
When the Democratic Alliance took over the administration in Tshwane, as a minority administration and in coalition with a number of small parties, we understood that the City was in a bad situation. The financial position was dire, and there was a huge backlog in the supply of bulk infrastructure as well as a significant backlog in infrastructure maintenance. However we did not understand how bad it really was. The water, sanitation and electricity networks were on the verge of collapse, and the backlog in bulk services such as water and wastewater treatment, reservoirs, substations and in-feed stations from Eskom was dire. On top of that an inefficient and often obstructive administration did not have the will to improve the situation.
This talk will highlight the deficiencies in the supply of water, power and wastewater services and the plans the DA administration has put in place to overcome these.
