"MADE IN AFRICA - FOR AFRICA"
KRUGERSDORP CITY HALL – 04 MARCH 2013
We were directed to the Market Hall ‘allocated’ to SASSA for the re-registration process.
This picture was taken just outside the entrance to the Market Hall
Inside the Market Hall - The social grant beneficiaries can be seen in the background.
Both the Gents and Ladies toilets, serving the Market Hall, had no lights and no water to flush - the stench was unbearable!
To scared to go into the dark toilet?
I immediately and personally reported the issue to the Krugersdorp City Manager’s Office, who referred me to the Executive Manager, Corporate Support Services, who referred me to the Executive Manager, Environmental Services, who undertook to look into the matter.
As soon as I got back to my office I made a followed-up via email with copies of the pictures above:

Dear Me. MOKEBE,
This visit was so disheartening - the situation had deteriorated.
Access to the
dark and filthy toilets have been closed to the public, patrons are now
using an empty room, leading from the Market Hall, to relieve
Although the rubbish was removed from the ‘fountain’ on Monday, shortly after we met, this 'fountain' is once again being used as a rubbish bin.
The floor within the Market Hall had not been cleaned. On Monday this floor was in desperate need of a mop and disinfectant. Small children, who have to accompany their parents for social grant re-registration, are playing and crawling on this filthy floor.
I did not bother to take any pictures.
