    The Free State Province celebrated its unique and colourful heritage during the National Heritage day celebration which was held at the Showground in Setsoto Local Municipality. The 2014 Heritage Day celebration was staged under the theme: “Celebrating 20 Years of Democracy: Tell your story that moves South Africa Forward! "

    The theme encouraged South Africans to tell their stories as part of celebrating 20 years of democracy. South Africa is a country with a great story to tell, a story of struggle and victory and a commitment to work together to foster nation building and social cohesion.

    This year’s Heritage Month presented an opportunity to remind the nation of our rich heritage through oral history narrations, exhibitions, poetry, music and dance. These activities helped to reinforce efforts for the promotion and preservation of our collective memory and encouraged a sense of common belonging and a shared history.

    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.
