Mokgotho, Ms SM to ask the Minister of Water and Sanitation

What intervention measures have been put in place by his department to ensure that residents of Ward 5 at Lomanyaneng in Mahikeng have access to adequate water on a regular basis?


Lomanyaneng Ward 5 is currently provided with water from the Mahikeng Water Treatment Works and from seven (7) boreholes situated in Majemantsho Village. The current water supply of 5 Ml/d does not meet the demand of 7Ml/d in the area.

According to the Ngaka Modiri Molema District Municipality (DM), which is a designated Water Service Authority (WSA), funding of R 55 million was made available for ground water augmentation project in Lomanyaneng. The project scope includes drilling and equipping of nine (9) boreholes and refurbishment of a booster pump station. Upon completion of this project, it is expected that additional 2.4 Ml/d will be supplied into the system. The project commenced in November 2021 and is expected to be completed in July 2022.

Furthermore, the Ngaka Modiri Molema DM is currently implementing a Bulk Water Supply Project in ward 31 at Dithakong Village which will also augment the supply to both Ward 35 and 5 once commissioned.
