While political parties continue to do all they can to impress South Africans and win votes, the African National Congress had David Mabuza visit Limpopo villages and promise them a 32km tarred road.
The residents of Hlomela and Thoma were promised a new tarred road of about 32km on which construction will be started within the next 2 weeks.
This promise was made by the African National Congress' Deputy President David Mabuza when he visited the villages.
According to a report by SABC News, Mabuza was talking to the residents on service delivery issues like their water shortage.
However, Briefly.co.za gathered that the day did not go by without incident, as Mabuza's security team, as well as the police, had to handle an angry crowd after they tried to force their way onto the stage where he was speaking.
The crowd demanded a tarred road, and made the promise to have construction on the road started within 2 weeks.
The message that I am bringing is that the contractor to build the road has been appointed. We were put under much pressure by the king and the community. RAL happened to come to our rescue; they’ve appointed the contractor.
Today the contractor was introduced so we think it is all systems go, but the other matter they are raising it is water, it is a matter that we are going to take it up with them.
