What a window dressing show!

The Editor,

With amusement I have watched the Local Municipality of Madibeng’s notification regarding closure of Scott Street in Schoemansville all the way to Damdoryn on Friday, 8 March 2019 to repair potholes.

Really, is this action just bluffing and deceiving visitors and athletes to our area for the annual Om-die-Dam-Marathon this coming weekend and hiding the true state of affairs and the total degradation of our roads and infrastructure?

Maybe we could convince the marathon organisers to plan next year’s route up and down all the streets in all our neighbourhoods in Hartbeespoort to ensure that ALL the potholes get fixed? Sorry Brits, I don’t think we will be able to convince them to go that far…

No Madibeng, with the elections coming up, stop your window dressing and show us, the residents who are incidentally also your regular taxpayers that you are worthy and capable of serving the interest of the community.
