Lekwa fixes pipe responsible for the pothole that people believed claimed young woman’s life

Municipal employees fixing the pipe in Nelson Mandela Drive.

Lekwa Municipality began repairing a leaking pipe responsible for a pothole in Nelson Mandela Drive, Meyerville on 2 October.

The pothole was blamed by many for the death of Ms Jani Grobler on 24 September.

This came after a driver swerved and collided with Ms Grobler’s vehicle which also left Mr Henk Swanepoel injured.

According to the municipal workers, the pothole is expected to be fixed on 3 October.

Some residents have already spoken out about the shoddy job done by the municipality in fixing the pothole.

The Standerton Advertiser inspected yesterday at about 4.45pm and found that it was not sufficiently leveled, but it remains to be seen whether they will continue patching up and levelling the road today.
