Maruleng mayor keeps promise for new road

Maruleng Local Municipality (MLM) Mayor Tsheko Musolwa says the sod-turning ceremony for rehabilitating and maintaining the Lorraine and Madeira access road proves that the municipality is serious about service delivery.

During the event on Tuesday, May 28 and Friday, May 31, he asked the community not to obstruct work and to take care of the project. He said the contractor would remove the old tar and start from the bottom to rehabilitate the road properly. “Please work with whoever is in charge of this project. We are here to show that the project is going to start,” he said.

According to him road infrastructure plays a significant role in the economy of Maruleng. “Over the years the municipality has focussed on the construction and rehabilitation of road infrastructure, especially those that connect to outlying villages. The MLM will continue to allocate resources to roll out major road infrastructure projects,” he added.

We are used to politicians running away after elections, but you came back to continue your work,” he said.

“To the community members, I plead with you to support this project. This road is badly damaged, and now our complaints have been heard,” he said. Clrs Blantina Raganya, Jeffrey Morema and Sydney Ntimane accompanied the mayor.
