A tragic shooting incident that occurred on Sunday afternoon in Mfuleni has left one police officer dead and three others injured.
The municipality, which sprawls along the north bank of the Vaal River near Vereeniging, is one of Gauteng’s most densely populated areas, with Sebokeng, Evaton, Sharpeville, and Boipatong townships lying within its boundaries.
Rand Water said they would reach out to the municipalities again, and if they failed to commit to pay, they would again reduce water pressure.
Two seven-year-old boys who were found lifeless in a Mfuleni dam, were reported missing by their families in Khayelitsha last week.
After a meeting that was said to be ‘transparent,’ the Emfuleni made a payment of R50 million towards its debt owed to Eskom.
The DA slammed the cash-strapped municipality for its sky-high travel claims while it owes Eskom R2.3 billion in debt.
