Kuvukiland, Soweto residents demand better service

Breadcrumb

Residents of Tsumeb's largest informal settlements, Kuvikiland and Soweto, are demanding better living conditions and development.

This is the fifth time residents have taken to the streets and vowed to protest until their demands are met.

The community is aggrieved by the water cuts and wants their water debts to be written off.

They also want prepaid water metres installed to better manage their use, saying that because most of them are unemployed, they cannot afford rates and taxes.
