The pot-hole ridden road is in a terrible state of decay and is currently not safe to drive on, having caused many horrific car crashes.
This makes it difficult for businesses to keep running, learners to get to school, residents to get to work, and for essential services like the SAPS and emergency medical response to access communities in need.
Please sign our petition.
The DA in North West will submit the signed petition to the North West Legislature and Parliament to urge government to act now and immediately allocate the much-needed resources to fix up this road.
It becomes near impossible to get to schools and other services when the gravel road washes away in heavy rain.
But for the past ten years, the North West Department of Public Works and Roads has failed to build a tar road. They continue to waste money gravelling the road instead of doing the job properly and building a tar road that everyone can use.
Sign this petition for the National Department of Public Works and Infrastructure to tar this road.

Premier David Makhura is not fit to govern Gauteng.
The DA in the Gauteng Provincial Legislature has tabled a motion of no confidence against the Premier for his involvement and inaction in the looting of funds intended to procure personal protective equipment for COVID-19 and his failure to ease the impact of the lockdown on residents.
We call on all Gauteng residents to show their support for the DA’s Motion of No Confidence in Premier Makhura by signing this petition.
It is a disgrace that while the country is battling COVID-19, some leaders are using corrupt elements to enrich themselves through these funds.
Madibeng Local Municipality has neglected the maintenance and upgrades of sewerage infrastructure in Hartbeespoort which results in raw sewage flowing down streets, into residents’ homes and into the Hartbeespoort Dam.
The sewerage overflow poses a risk to the health and well-being of residents while it also causes environmental degradation and further pollutes the Hartbeespoort Dam. This aggravates the Hyacinth infestation and hampers rehabilitation of the dam.
Apart from the serious health and environmental concerns, the constant pollution caused by raw sewerage has a negative impact on the local economy, which is largely dependent on tourism.
The Madibeng Infrastructure Department has failed to offer a permanent solution to this problem. The sewerage spill is caused by a lack of maintenance and upgrades to the sewerage pipelines and pump stations.
Sign our petition to pressure the Madibeng Local Municipality to urgently repair the sewerage infrastructure and rehabilitate affected areas, and to compel the National Department of Water and Sanitation to coordinate and assist with this urgent matter.

Electricity is a basic service that must be delivered to all equally.
The Ellaton, Klerksindustria, Mayfair Village, Strathmore farms and surrounding areas in the south of Klerksdorp experience frequent and unplanned power cuts, sometimes for over 72 hours due to the Municipality’s failure to maintain the electricity infrastructure.
The electricity infrastructure is overloaded due to illegal connections, lack of technical support and not enough electricians hired to respond to power cuts.
With several old age homes and businesses in the area, electricity is needed for the operation of medical equipment, such as oxygen machines and nebulisers, while businesses suffer a losses from a reduction in productivity and trade which places their sustainability and jobs at risk.
Sign this petition to pressure the Matlosana Municipality to respond to these issues as residents and ratepayers’ lives are severely disrupted.
For more information contact Councillor Shaun-Patrick Sesana on 071 210 8275.
Fight for a Riebeek East police station that is manned 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Currently the police station is not manned overnight and only manned during the day by Police Officers from Grahamstown/Makhanda. Lawlessness occurs mainly after hours, therefore highlighting the need for a 24/7 manned police station!
Please join me in signing the DA’s petition to ensure a Riebeek East police station that is open for business 24/7
