Ekangala residents near Bronkhorstspruit in Gauteng are protesting over water shortages in their area.

Aggrieved residents say they have been without water for a month.

Ekangala Development Foundation chairperson Rankitsing “Asha” Xaba says the area will be under total shutdown today and children will not be going to school.

Xaba says, “We want the province to intervene in this issue, and make sure that they resolve this issue because it’s about a month now, our people without water. In the one township, we only have six water tankers which can’t even reach the numbers of our people.”

“Only essential services will be working, everyone, even the school children are not going to school today. If we’re saying we’re sending the kids to school where are they going to bath?” he adds.
