Update on Water Situation

The City is currently busy with an investigation in relation to the current water disruption in the eastern side of the city which include amongst other areas: Estoire, Ribblesdale and Bergman Square.

The following steps are being taken to correct the situation:

  • The City has already identified the first leakage on the pipeline upstream of the Freedom Reservoir next to M10 road in the new East End this morning. A team is currently busy with the preparatory work to fix the leakage.
  • We are also increasing the water inflow to the Freedom Square Reservoir which supplies the affected areas from 65% to 100% as from 04:00 this morning.

We have put a contingency plan place at the affected areas. We are currently putting water tankers in strategic areas that are affected such as Aljo’s Spar on the N8, Ribblesdale and Bergman Square.

The city would like to apologise to the affected communities for the inconvenience caused.

News: Building the Legacy: 20 YEARS OF FREEDOM Exhibition

Traffic came to a standstill in Mangaung Metro on Monday 17 March 2014 when a fleet of heavy-duty trucks with its 24 shipping containers arrived in Mangaung. The trucks are hauling tons of equipment for the ‘Building the Legacy: 20 Years of Freedom’ interactive exhibition that will take place at the Free State Stadium from 21 – 30 March, 2014.

The trucks are carrying exhibition props, giant screens and AV equipment and did a drive past through the City Centre, Mangaung and then ended at the Legislature at around 11am (detailed route below).

The biggest exhibition of its kind ever undertaken in the country, it is unique in that it offers the general public an interactive view of South African history as well as the progress made since 1994.

In addition to the 24 shipping containers of artefacts, expo material and props that make up the exhibition, the public will be informed and educated by a team of professional actors and performers who bring the past alive – with anecdotes of forced removals, injustice and despair – while also highlighting the progress made in recent years and providing hope for our future of our land.

According to the Director-General for the Department of Rural Development and Land Reform Mr Mduduzi Shabane, the exhibition is aimed at creating awareness especially among the Youth, about the journey travelled thus far and the progress made by the government of the day towards reversing the negative legacy of the 1913 Natives’ Land Act and related racially motivated laws.

A journey of injustice, despair leading to freedom and hope

When the Department of Rural Development and Land Reform (DRDLR) originally embarked on a project for the Centenary event for the Reversing the Legacy of the 1913 Natives’ Land Act, the plan was to have an exhibition that was unique as well as innovative and would be presented in a manner that was memorable and impressive.

The outcome was 13 sets of epic proportions with over 50 actors and performers bringing history to life.  Every person who experiences the exhibition is drawn into the fantasy-world of history as the actors and performers bring the set to life through their performance, costumes and the music.

It starts with the Khoisan, then a traditional kraal, followed by the wars (spear-on-spear and thereafter spear-on-guns), the colonialists and the huge stone walls depicting the 1913 Natives Land Act, the policemen and the magistrate that assess the dompas.  The might of legislation in SA is illustrated by these massive monoliths of stone.

Passing through this one is grated by 1950’s placard wielding youth protesting, and further behind them the final party takes place in the remaining tavern in Sophiatown, with a jovial mood that belies the impending forced removals.

Just opposite Marabastad and Sophiatown lies the ruins of District 6, the broken bricks bearing testimony to the destruction.  And in the last scene within this era is a family being evicted, with all their meagre possessions packed onto the infamous Bedford truck, the pain and sorrow etched into the faces.  The defiance campaign is captured and leads one onto the resistance with a Casspir, a police van and struggle posters.

A transition curtain allows one to move into democratic South Africa, greeted by the release of Nelson Mandela from prison, depicted on cinema-size large screens with a portrait of the first democratically elected leader of South Africa taking the oath of office.

The mealie fields, marked by claims the department of Rural Development and Land Reform has settled, illustrates a department moving in the right direction in delivering more than land and  giving people their dignity back.

Every person is greeted by a unique rainbow coloured tree which has been dubbed the Freedom Tree, a place where the oral stories of South Africa are shared,.

Truck Drive-by Details:

Date: 17 March 2014.

The procession was lead and assisted by a fleet of vehicles from the Metro Police Department.

Virement Policy

Click here to download the PDF for the Mangaung Virement Policy

A virement represents a flexible mechanism to effect budgetary amendments within a municipal financial year.

Changing circumstances and priorities during a financial period may give rise to a need for virement (transfer) of funds within or between approved Votes, as defined in the Municipal Finance Management Act 56 of 2003 (MFMA). The treatment of such instances may however be dependent on whether an Adjustments Budget is required or not.

The MFMA and the Municipal Budget and Reporting Regulations, 2009 seek to move Municipalities away from the traditional approach of appropriating/ approving budgets by line item. The aim is to give the Heads of Municipal Departments and programmes greater flexibility in managing their budgets. In furtherance of this objective, each Municipality must put in place a Council approved Virement Policy, which should provide clear guidance to managers on when they may shift funds between items, projects, programmes and votes.

Press Release: Update on Water Situation

The City Manager and her team undertook a site visit this morning to both Mockes Dam and Masselspoort. Part of what was discovered is that there are farmers who are illegally extracting water between Masselspoort and Mockes Dam. As a result, Masselspoort levels are not rising at the expected rate.

They have admitted to the illegal extraction, and they have indicated that they have three more dams overflowing with the city’s water. We also discovered that the responsible farmers are distributing water to about 10 other farm properties. It appears that this illegal extraction has been happening for some time.

The municipality is the sole distributor of water, and none of the farmers in and around the area have water rights.

We have immediately instructed our legal representatives to approach the court for an interdict. This immediate intervention will assist in ensuring that water levels at Masselspoort rise rapidly. Once the extraction has been abruptly stopped, water levels are expected to rise by Tuesday, 28 January 2014.

We have also discovered that two sluice gates at Mockes Dam were blocked by debris, and this is disrupting the flow of water. As a result, this lowers the pace of raw water filling up the Masselspoort Weir, which supplies water to the broader community of Bloemfontein. The dam level at Mockes Dam is at an all time low due to draught and the heat waves that the city is experiencing.

In our endeavour to identify the obstruction, professional divers have been commissioned and this process will happen tomorrow morning. This is a technical operation; hence the city cannot just assign anybody.

It has also come to our attention that the Democratic Alliance, which is represented in the council, has opened a case against the municipality. We have tried to get the details of what is contained in the charges, so that we respond appropriately. The city has contacted the Investigating Officer, but could not reach them by the time of releasing this statement.

In rolling out the city’s water infrastructure plan, the Metro is in the process of upgrading the old pump systems at Masselspoort. The contract was awarded to Veolia Water for R65 million (excluding VAT) following the tender process.

The contract commenced on the 19th of August in 2013. The large pumps are in the process of being manufactured and project completion is scheduled for December 2014. Some of these large pumps are being imported. These new pumps with a much higher efficiency will increase the delivery of the raw water extraction and delivery of potable water to Bloemfontein from Masselspoort.

The following refurbishment upgrades are in process:

  1. Mechanical and electrical Contractual Completion – 22 October 2014
  2. Refurbishment of Pump Building – Civil Contractual Completion  – 21 May 2015
  3. Process upgrade to improve water quality  (In Preliminary design phase – 25 Feb 2014 Completion)

The city would like to apologise for all citizens affected by this interruption, and also appeal for patience.

Water Supply Problem

We are still experiencing the challenges of supplying water efficiently due to the low river level at Maselspoort.

The following areas are still affected:

  • Pentagon
  • Heuwelsig
  • Lillyvalle
  • Spitzkop

These are the high laying areas.  We must take note though that the water scarcity in our rivers that are running dry are realities that the country is facing . Water tankers are being  despatched to different areas. We have requested councillors to engage with Engineering directorate for distribution  operation of water tankers.

Maselspoort will start supplying water later today and tomorrow and full restoration can be expected tomorrow and Tuesday in worse case scenario. The city will engage DWA because there are people that withdrawing water at Maselspoort dam(upstream) this also contribute to delay of water supply to the city as their building their own dam.

MANGAUNG is situated in the Free State Province, in the central interior of South Africa.
