The Department of Water and Sanitation slams the torching of water tanks in Orange Farm

VAAL TRIANGLE - The Department of Water and Sanitation says the torching of water tanks in Orange Farm, south of Johannesburg, is a major setback in efforts to provide water to communities in need. The tanks were torched during demonstrations by residents over water and electricity challenges in the area. To date, the department has provided a total of 2232 water tanks in several parts of Gauteng. The department’s Sibusiso Mthembu says these acts of wanton destruction of property are infringing upon the rights of citizens.
