The president of the Forum 4 Service Delivery (F4SD), Mbahare Kekana, says they are happy that the Mayor of Matjhabeng attended the march and accepted the organisation's memorandum.
This follows the organisation's gathering in Welkom on Wednesday to march against the Matjhabeng Local Municipality's service delivery issues and gender-based violence. Mbahare says they have agreed on three weeks for the Mayor to respond and is ready to work together with whoever is responsible for service delivery, so that the people can get improved services and improve their standard of living.
Kekana previously told OFM News that the march is against service delivery that is not of a good standard at Matjhabeng. Kekana further added that the number of gender-based violence incidents is high, and at a level where they can’t accept it anymore. That is why F4SD converged on Wednesday to demonstrate their unhappiness. Kekana says there are issues regarding the shortage of houses, issues of water, land, and also crime. They saw it fit to lead the Matjhabeng community so that they can kick open whatever door for their community to be listened to.
