    The Municipality would like to bring to the attention of all community members that all raw water sources are dry and the municipality is facing the challenge of providing even a single drop of water in our taps. The Municipality would like to emphasize that drought is a national challenge it is not only in Setsoto.

    The municipality will however continue delivering water to communities through water tanks. Members are advised to consult with their Ward Councillors regarding points of delivery and time schedules or consultation can be done at nearest Municipal Offices.

    We appeal to the residents to start using the little water at our disposal sparingly, immediately. Activities such as watering gardens and car washing must be halted to lengthen the supply of water to all residents.

    It is up to us all to take responsibility to conserve water and we therefore urge all community members to immediately report water leakages so that we can prevent further loss of water.

    The Municipality would like to thank all of you for bearing with us during this trying times.

    The Mayor of Setsoto and the community of Setsoto Local Municipality strongly discourage all forms of violence against foreign nationals.
    South Africa’s transition to democracy was one of the world’s most iconic testimonies of tolerance and peaceful co-existence. Under the stewardship of Nelson Mandela the country had an unwavering dedication to democracy, selflessness, reconciliation, service to humanity and a better life for all.

    The recent attacks on foreign nationals are a threat to our historical achievements as a nation. Moreover, the attacks go against the democratic values enshrined in the Constitution.
    Government encourages communities to continue to work with government to ensure that there is a lasting peace. Be part of the solution by saying no to violence and reporting those who are bent on using violence to destabilise our society to the police.

    The month of March is the month of Human Rights celebrated under the theme “Celebrating the Freedom Charter, Enjoying Equal Human Rights for All”, on the 13th of March 2015, Setsoto Municipality celebrated this month together with the Provincial Government led by the Honorable Premier Ntate Ace Magashule.
    The purpose of the day was to restore the dignity of the people of Setsoto through provision of housing security and to encourage the residents of Ficksburg/Meqheleng to play an active role in social cohesion and nation building. The Honorable Premier Ntate Ace Magashule together with Honorable MEC for Public Works and Infrastructure Ntate Sam Mashinini and Honorable Mayor of Setsoto Municipality Cllr Tshediso Jakobo handed over 8 complete houses to beneficiaries in Caledon Park in Ficksburg.
    The beneficiaries received keys to their new and bigger houses after demolishing houses built before 1994 in which these families used to stay in. Upon realising the inhumane environments in which these Coloured families lived in, deprived of their privacy, the Free State Provincial government resolved to restore their dignity by providing them with decent houses. This is in line with the provincial government's commitment to do away with two-roomed houses in the province. The new houses were built through the EPWP massification programme by artisans and the local EPWP participants. Through this programme, the unskilled people acquired skills whilst at the same time they were able to put bread on their tables.
    The hand over came right after a massive cleaning campaign at Caledon Park and other identified areas around Meqheleng. The cleaning campaign was led by the Free State Premier Ace Magashule, Members of the Executive Council and Setsoto Council- heeding the call by President Jacob Zuma during the State of the Nation Address (SONA) for citizens to keep their environments clean.
    “We pride ourselves with the newly built houses by the provincial government to our community, as the municipality in partnership with the government we shall ensure that our people live in dignity while exercising their right to access adequate housing” said the Mayor of Setsoto - Cllr Tshediso Jakobo
    Later on, the Premier and the Executive paid a visit to the Wilheminah Agri-village just outside Ficksburg. This is the second Agri-village that the province has established after Diyatalawa. To date, over fifty people are proud occupants of the newly built 50m2 houses at Wilheminah.

    From the 02nd of February 2015, the Setsoto Local Municipality through the Department of Development Planning and Social Security embarked on a public awareness campaign. The purpose of the campaign was to alert and educate learners and ward committee members on issues of Environmental Affairs, Traffic, Fire and Disaster Management.
    The campaign took place around all four towns of Setsoto with all Primary Schools being participants of the campaign. During this campaign municipal representatives educated the learners about the issues of climate change, types of disaster, road safety tips, fire and rescue tips and how to care for our environment.
    The reception of the campaign was welcomed by all schools and thus brought insight and/or emphasis on the work already done by the teachers. The Municipality emphasised amongst others that in order to prevent further damage to our environment, one need to start changing the way of living by refraining from dumping waste at area that are not designated as dumping areas. The learners were eager to learn and this was shown by their excitement during questions session.
    The Municipality prides its self in the communities it serves and aims to protect and honour the promise the Municipality made which is to serve its communities and this promise can only be upheld if the communities work together with the Municipality.

    Take care of the environment because it takes care of us.

    We appeal to the residents to start using water sparingly, immediately. Activities such as watering gardens and car washing must be halted to lengthen the supply of water to all residents.

    It is up to us all to take responsibility to conserve water and we therefore urge all community members to immediately report water leakages so that we can prevent further loss of water.

    KENNISGEWING

    Alle inwoners word weereens in kennis gestel dat daar ‘n tekort aan water is. Die probleem word veroorsaak deur die lae vlakke van ons water bronne.

    Die Munisipaliteit is begin met die implementering van metering om ons water te bespaar soos water beperkings en klep beheer. Water sal daagliks toegemaak word tussen 21h00 en 04h00 (Clocolan & Marquard) om die munisipaliteit instaat te stel om die min water tot ons beskikking te stoor. In sommige gevalle sal water afgesluit word as ‘n maatreel om die munisipaliteit instaat te stoel om normale instandhouding te doen.

    Ons doen ‘n beroep op inwoners om water spaarsaamig te gebruik met onmiddelike ingang. Aktiwiteite soos om tuine nat te lei en motors was moet gestaak word sodat water beskikbaar kan wees aan al die inwoners.

    Dit is die verantwoordelikheid van die inwoners om water te bespaar en ons moedig alle inwoners aan om enige lekplekke onmiddelik aan te meld sodat ons verdere verlies van water kan voorkom.

    On the 27th of November 2014, the Setsoto Local Municipality launched the first in the Free State, a Municipal Fraud & Corruption Hotline at Clocolan Town Hall.

    The purpose of this Fraud & Corruption Hotline is to mitigate fraud and corruption within and around Setsoto Local Municipality. The big step to be taken before anything else, is to admit that fraud and corruption is happening and therefore find and implement solutions thereof.

    Fraud represents a significant potential risk to the SETSOTO LOCAL MUNICIPALITY’s assets, service delivery efficiency and reputation. The Municipality will not tolerate corrupt or fraudulent activities, whether internal or external to the Institution, and will vigorously pursue and prosecute any parties, by all legal means available, which engage in such practices or attempt to do so.

    This hotline has been developed as a result of the expressed commitment of Government to fight corruption such as:

    • Maintaining a culture which is intolerant (zero tolerance) to fraud;
    • Deterrence of fraud;
    • Preventing fraud which cannot be deterred;
    • Detection of fraud;
    • Investigating detected fraud;
    • Taking appropriate action against fraudsters, e.g. prosecution, disciplinary action, etc; and
    • Applying sanctions, which include redress in respect of financial losses.


    This hotline is operating 24/7 and anyone can report their suspicions with no fear as no details of the whistle blower are needed except brief explanation of the incident, time of the incident, the perpetrator and maybe evidence such as photos etc. The Hotline number is 086 072 6325 and evidence can be emailed to fraud@setsoto.co.za or faxed to 088 051 933 5374.
