                    Each municipality were then given a mark out of a 100 index points for financial sustainability and provinces were then rated based on the average score its municipalities received.

                    According to Municipal Manager, Tshepiso Ramakarane, they’re humbled.

                    “We are humbled by the determination of Setsoto to pursue excellence. This pursuit of excellence should also not be confined to one or a few municipalities. I think it is what government has committed to do in terms of the Batho Pele principles, to ensure that we provide quality service to our communities. We also didn’t achieve this milestone overnight. This has been a collective effort, both by employees of Setsoto, the political leadership of the municipality and most importantly, the support of stakeholders, provincial government as well as sector departments at national level.”

                    April is Freedom Month, which commemorates the heroic struggle for freedom in South Africa and the historic occasion in April 1994 when South Africans from all walks of life cast their votes in the first free and fair democratic elections.

                    One of the memorable occasions was the long, meandering queues that were characterised by the interracial patience, friendship and tolerance towards one another. The 27th of April has been aptly declared Freedom Day, to symbolise the liberation of South Africa from the bondage of apartheid and colonialism.

                    Freedom Month provides an opportunity for South Africans to celebrate and reflect on the progress we have made since the dawn of democracy and recommit ourselves to work together to move South Africa forward. This year’s celebrations will take place within the context of a country that is making tremendous progress in the implementation of the government Programme of Action and changing the lives of the people for the better, in line with the objectives of the National Development Plan (NDP) which, among other things, seeks to eliminate poverty and inequality by 2030.

                    As a young democracy, such commemorations serve to educate the youth about our history, the struggle for freedom, ultimate liberation and their important responsibility to uphold the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa of 1996. We must all work towards realizing our full potential in our lifetime, inspired by Vision 2030 of the NDP.

                    Freedom Month 2016 plays a significant role in the process of consolidating the gains of our freedom and democracy, and paving the way towards Vision 2030. The year 2016 marks 20 years since our Constitution was signed into law by the first democratically elected President of South Africa, former President Nelson Mandela. It also marks the 61st Anniversary of the Freedom Charter, the historic road map to our struggle for freedom and ultimately the achievement of democracy. Freedom Month also provides us an opportunity to promote and strengthen solidarity, tolerance, national identity and social cohesion.

                    As we celebrate Freedom Month, government urges all South Africans to keep our democracy alive and vibrant by registering to vote, checking their registration status and updating their details on the voters’ roll during the final registration weekend of 9 and 10 April. The upcoming local elections are an important milestone on the road towards attaining our developmental objectives. We all need to play our part in strengthening democracy and deepening public participation because local government is in your hands.

                    Meanwhile, South Africans are urged in participate in all the events and activities to commemorate Freedom Month.

                    The 2016 National Freedom Day event will be held in Limpopo.

                    Senekal Gets Flowing.

                    It is now over a month since the residents of Senekal/Matwabeng had no running water from their taps. This came after Setsoto Local Municipality was amongst municipalities that suffered from serious drought effects with water levels being dried up due to lack of rain and this led to water supply being insufficient for the demand in the area.

                    However, today being the 04th of February 2016, for the first time after over a month the residents of both Senekal/Matwabeng received running water from their taps. This was possible due to the little rain Senekal/Matwabeng received in the past days which saw our reservoirs being filled to their 99% capacity.

                    To ensure a longer supply of water to the residents, the Municipality will resume with water restrictions and valve management immediately and therefore the residents will have running water from 05h00 am till 08h00am in the morning on daily basis. This will continue for as long as there is water in our reservoirs and we continue to receive rain in Senekal/Matwabeng.

                    During the water crisis in Senekal/Matwabeng, the municipality was providing water to the residents through water tankers and the municipality ensured residents get quality drinkable water at all times.

                    Although residents have running water, we appeal to the residents to continue 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.

                    The Municipality would like to thank the community for bearing with us during the time of water crisis.

                    Heat wave fuels dryness

                    12 January 2016

                    The Setsoto Local Municipality is amongst municipalities that suffer from serious drought effects. The water levels have dried up due to lack of rain and this has led to water supply being insufficient for the demand in the area. The most affected area is Senekal; the town has been without water now for a month.

                    The municipality has been providing water through water tankers and getting assistance from the South African National Defence Force (SANDF) and local Shoprite with additional tankers for water supply. The available tankers are not enough for the vast community due to high demand. The municipality is making sure that the community gets quality drinkable water at all times.

                    The Department of Water and Sanitation is contributing an additional two (2) mobile water tankers with capacity of 18 000 liters each, in order to assist the municipality. This is a short term solution while awaiting the rain.

                    The government will continue to provide the basic needs of South Africans whilst acknowledging that the current situation is a natural phenomenon; however communities are also urged to use water sparingly.

                    Since mid-December 2015, the community of Senekal/Matwabeng ran out of running water in their taps. The situation of dry taps is influenced by the current drought that saw Setsoto Municipality being one of the municipalities in the Free State

                    This situation saw the birth of water tankering program which came upon realizing that more than half of the population could not get water from the taps anymore. This program has since ran from then and continues on a daily basis.

                    Setsoto Municipality has since supplied more than 3.5 Million litres of water through water tankering program and therefore ensuring that water is supplied to the community on a daily basis. More than 36 water supply stations has been identified including key areas like hospital, correctional Service, clinics, police stations etc.

                    A minimum of 50 litres per day per household is supplied and therefore averaging to more than 260k litres being provided per day since the program started.

                    This extensive supply of water to the community has been augmented by assistance from SA Army in a form of tankering water to Senekal. These millions of litres of water supplied to the community so far is purchased from surrounding farmers (From boreholes) who charge the municipality 15c per litre.

                    The Municipality will continue to ensure that its communities are provided with water therefore the municipality humbly requests the communities to be patient and co-operative during this trying time.

                    The now called LS Sefatsa Library was renamed after Me Limakatso Suzan Sefatsa who was born and bred in Matwabeng Senekal. Me Sefatsa is a known author of Sesotho Novels and Sesotho radio plays, to give highlight on some work done by Me Sefatsa, she wrote a book called “Pakiso” and she also wrote Sesotho Radio play (Pale) called “Mme, Ntate o kae” which was aired at Radio Sesotho then.

                    Having to honour people of such calibre and this time who is still alive it is truly an honour. “To have such committed and dedicated people in our municipality who strive to educate their fellow people shows that indeed amongst us we still have selfless leaders” said the Speaker of Setsoto Municipality Cllr Pius Mohlomi.

                    Notice is hereby given to all residents of Setsoto Local Municipality as alert with regard to provision of water to all residents.

                    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.

                    Water was released from Katse Dam as to try to apprehend the current situation of shortage of water in Setsoto as a whole but due to lack of rain, our raw water sources are still dry leaving levels of our reservoirs very low if not empty hence most areas/sections around all towns of Setsoto are without water currently.

                    The municipality will however continue delivering water to communities through water tanks. Members are advised to consult with their Ward Councilors 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.

                    Water related enquiries:

                    The Setsoto Local Municipality in partnership with different stakeholders donated school uniform to identified learners from different schools of Meqheleng who were considered to be less fortunate.

                    This event took place in Meqheleng on the 25th of July 2015, this initiative was brought to life by the office of Disaster Management within the Municipality which later saw different stakeholders coming on board. 50 learners from different primary schools benefited with each learner receiving a pair of shoes, a pair of socks and a school shirt.

                    Learners who received the uniform were grateful especially since they received the uniform during winter. “When we were busy conducting awareness campaigns directed at primary schools, we realised that there were children who were not wearing proper school uniform and other didn’t have uniform at all like shoes and that is when we decided to give back to our community by donating this school uniform to our children” said Ginger Lebajoa who is Municipal Disaster Co-ordinator.

                    Every year on 18 July South Africans and the international community honour former President and international icon, the late Nelson Mandela through the Nelson Mandela International Day.

                    The 2015 Nelson Mande
                    la Day is therefore a call to action for the nation to work together for the continuous development of humanity through the attainment of basic freedom in line with this year’s message - “Take Action - Inspire Change - Make Every Day a Mandela Day”.

                    To celebrate this auspicious day, the Setsoto Local Municipality in partnership with WSSA embarked on a cleaning campaign led by the Mayor of Setsoto Local Municipality, Councillor Tshediso Jakobo.

                    The cleaning campaign took place in all four (4) towns of Setsoto with focus on child headed and indigent families. The activity of the day was to clean and renovate identified households, there after the Mayor and Ward Councillors donated blankets to identified beneficiaries. The hand-out of blankets extended to pre-schools where hand knitted blankets were donated to two (2) pre-schools per town by the office of CWP on behalf of COGTA.

                    “We must ensure that the Legacy of Nelson Mandela lives on by making everyday a Mandela day. To us these kind of activities might seem small but to those at the receiving end it is a change that brings a sense of hope”, said Mayor Tshediso Jakobo.
