Numerous posts on Facebook this morning have mentioned that the current water problem in various suburbs of Krugersdorp is not due to cable theft at a Rand Water hub in the Bruma area.

Sonja Mc Pherson posted on the Krugersdorp Community Forum page that she contacted Rand Water herself. They confirmed that there was no cable theft causing the pumping stations and ultimately the reservoirs in Krugersdorp to run dry. She also said they reiterated that the problem is not from their side.

• Anthos Shopping Centre (Monument Checkers)
