Munisipaliteit laat oues koud stort

Posted in Community

Klerksdorp Rekord, Klerksdorp - Bejaardes in verskeie munisipale woonstelle op Orkney en in Randlespark sukkel reeds ses maande sonder warmwatertoestelle. Anna Schreuder is 87 jaar oud en maak saans met ‘n gesukkel ’n kastrol vol water wat sy op haar eenplaatstofie kook om bietjie warm water te kry om haarself “af te spons’’. Soms moet sy ‘n paar kastrolle water kook as sy haarself die luukse gun om te bad. Dié potte word dan een vir een bad toe aangedra. Sy sê sy is bang sy laat val die kokende water en doen dit nie baie nie.
