  1. One of the letters state there is 21 uisp areas .16 belongs to kwanongaba and some of the areas are part of fase 1 ,2 and 3. There is no recomedation that brandwacht, ruiterbos and greatbrak that show they are part of fase 2 or 3.And im not races but its only the black areas that benefit where is our coloured areas we are 5 areas so why can we not benefit from fase 2 sins fase 1 is only kwanonkaba the black areas.

    • Hi Margaret. Thank you for making contact. Brandwacht, Ruiterbos and Greatbrak are not linked to a specific phase. There are still planning processes underway to get the development rights approved for those areas, before those areas are ready for implementation. We are working hard to try and get all the approvals in place in order for us to start with implementation. Please visit the site regularly for further updates.

  2. Why is Riemvasmaak Brandwacht not part of Fase 1 or 2 who much longer must we stay in the dark .Asla have electricy cuase they make illegal connections and Mosselbay
    Munisipality do nothing agaist them They shoot 1 here in Riemvasmaak they robbed us 3 shacks burn down we wait
    15 years for electricy they come now and benifit from the project and we must wait its no longer exeptable.

    • Hi Sharisa. Thank you for making contact. There are still environmental autorisation processes underway to get the development rights approved for the Riemvasmaak Brandwacht development, before that area is ready for implementation. We are working hard to try and get all the approvals in place in order for us to start with implementation. We are planning an Informal Settlements Forum Meeting for Brandwacht in the next week or so to provide the community with the latest feedback.
