On Tuesday, the office of the Limpopo premier shared photos of Chupu Mathabatha opening three boreholes for a small community, who was plagued with a lack of water.
The post read:
"Limpopo Premier Chupu Mathabatha says the challenges of lack of water in his Province made him donate boreholes to a community today."
"The Premier accompanied by Sekhukhune Exec Mayor Cllr Stan Ramaila donated about 3 boreholes and tankers to a community of about 450 people who suffer from lack of water. The community of Malebitsa in Ward 1 of Ephraim Mogale Municipality was the fortunate one."
'''Limpopo is a water scarce place, and I couldn't take it when this community pleaded I do something, and here we are today,' he said."
The post gathered quite the reaction on social media and Briefly.co.za saw South Africans wanted to know why they're suddenly helping the people.
Madumetja Shalas commented: "Donate? As if you are doing them a favour, it's your responsibility Ntate!"
Nkele Dee Mokgapa said: "Wow how convenient your timing is really just a day before elections."
Hlalelani Gleyston Changi NaTsopola added: "Why is he doing it now? What was he doing in the past 10 years? Investing money to VBS?"
Thakhani Theo Mudau wrote: "Show us where they were fetching water before.... And you were not suppose to show pictures of the officials without villagers.... Premier Did you use your money or government money? If you used your money that's great but you did it in a wrong time..... Anyway am happy that people they will be drinking clean water."
