Emfuleni Municipality must take service delivery seriously. The municipality is dysfunctional and shows no signs of improving.

Water shortages and power outages are some of its challenges. Poor service delivery remains a problem.

The municipality’s poor service puts residents lives at risk. It’s disheartening to realise local people’s lives are being affected as a result of the lack of political will to serve the people.

I don’t blame residents under the local municipality who refused to vote during the by-elections.

People have been without water and electricity for days now, putting them at risk of contracting Covid-19.

How will they wash their hands if they don’t have water? This is unacceptable and people are tired of empty promises.

The Gauteng government needs to put the municipality under administration.
