    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.

    On the 26th of September 2014, Department of Water and Sanitation released water from Lesotho Highlands Water to flow into Caledon River. This move will address the challenge of water shortage to the residents of Setsoto for a certain time.

    The Municipality would like to emphasize that the situation still remains critical hence we have begun to put measures to address the challenge of water in place. These measures are but not limited to valve management which will implemented as soon as possible.

    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. Entities such as hotels, abattoirs, government buildings and schools must reduce water usage as well.

    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 implementation of these water-saving measures by residents coupled with interventions from the municipality would assist in ensuring that we have water most of the time. The officials are available to assist residents with queries related to water shortage. The municipality will be implementing water restrictions to curb water shortage.
