A documentary produced by CheckPoint with Nkepile Mabuse and eNCAnews recently shared the story of the Mmangweni community taking the O.R. Thambo District Municipality to court after failing to provide basic services. With the help of the Legal Resource Centre, the municipality has now been ordered to deliver water tanks with clean water on a weekly basis until piped water arrives and even this has only reached half of the residents. Kristina Gubic started a fundraiser on hipporoller.org through the GivenGain Foundation that delivered 15 Hippo Rollers to the women of Mmangweni village who would spend an average of 4 hours a day collecting water with buckets.
