Petition to stop illegal mining by Zama-Zamas in Mogale City

Mogale City was established as a mining town and is now suffering devastation caused by illicit activities, such as illegal mining, by Zama-Zama’s in the entire area.

This is a massive problem as the damage to infrastructure causes sinkholes to collapse roads, such as Windsor Road, and places the lives of residents at risk.

This brazen attack on people’s lives, water infrastructure, electrical infrastructure, as well as roads is an outright declaration of war on the people of Mogale City, in particular, but the West-Rand in general!

The national and provincial government must urgently intervene:

  • All three spheres of government must establish a committee to coordinate action plans to address this matter as an urgent need.
  • State owned enterprises, such as Rand-water, must protect their infrastructure.
  • A commission of inquiry is needed to establish where the profits are being made along this illegal mining value chain.

A disaster zone declaration is imminent.

Sign the petition for urgent intervention.

Petition to address the Midrand traffic gridlock

We, the Community of Midrand, URGENTLY call on the Gauteng MEC of Transport, Jacob Mamabolo and the MMC of Transport in the City of Joburg, Cllr Funzela Ngubeni, to address the severe traffic gridlock on Olifantsfontein Road  particularly during peak hour traffic.

The gridlock is due to, in the main:

  • faulty traffic lights at Lever Road and those going onto the M1 North and South;
  • a lack of points people;
  • and the unruly behaviour of some motorists.

This puts our lives in danger daily. Unnecessary delays of up to 45 minutes to get through one intersection causes road rage and unsafe driving behaviour.

WE DESERVE BETTER!

You have failed the citizens of Midrand by ignoring our pleas to address this. You need to improve the safety of commuters by ensuring traffic lights work, or points people are on duty to ensure the free flow of traffic.

WE DESERVE BETTER!

Save our lives by doing what you are paid to do: protecting road users!

Petisie om Binnelandse Sake op Stellenbosch te red!

Click here to sign this petition in English

Die Kantoor van Binnelandse Sake in Stellenbosch het tans net 14% van die personeellede wat dit benodig om doeltreffend te funksioneer! Die kantoor is ook ver te klein, wat beteken dat slegs 222 kliënte per dag bedien word, in plaas van die 811 wat elke dag bedien behoort te word!

Onderteken hierdie petisie om aan te dring dat die Parlement:

  1. dringend die Minister van Binnelandse Sake en die Direkteur-Generaal van Binnelandse Sake tot orde roep en eis dat hulle verduidelik hoe hulle van plan is om hierdie situasie te beredder;
  2. verseker dat ‘n konkrete plan aan die Parlement voorgelê word wat sal verseker dat die Stellenbosse kantoor van Binnelandse Sake teen 1 September 2022 op 100% funksioneer in terme van beide personeel vereistes en vloerruimte; en
  3. meganismes in plek sit om die inwerkingstelling van enige ondernemings om dienslewering te verbeter, te moniteer.

Petition to fix Stellenbosch Home Affairs!

The Stellenbosch Home Affairs Office is only operating at 14% of its staff capacity and given its small size it is currently only able to serve 222 clients per day, instead of the 811 it is supposed to serve daily!

  2. ensures that a concrete plan is tabled before Parliament to ensure 100% capacity (in terms of staff and office space) by no later than 1 September 2022; and
  3. monitors the progress of any service delivery commitments made.

#GautengWaterCrisis: Support our water campaign to ensure access to uninterrupted water supply for all residents!

Rand Water’s scheduled water outages have resulted in many areas in Gauteng not having water. 

This leaves many of our residents with no water for days on end – in the middle of a pandemic. 

Sign our petition calling on the Gauteng Provincial Government and the CEO of Rand Water to urgently assist affected municipalities with water tankers during these water outages. 

Access to water is a basic Human Right and a Constitutional right!

In addition to this petition, our team will be tabling of an urgent motion in the Gauteng Provincial Legislature to immediately deal with this matter. 

We will also engage with the National Department of Water and Sanitation on its refusal to grant a license to Rand Water to increase its water capacity supply. 

A call to fix the water infrastructure in iLembe District

For the past decade or more, the ANC has done patch jobs on the water infrastructure in iLembe. When taps are turned on, water should come out. It is unacceptable that water is often delivered to consumers in the iLembe area via water tankers, when there has been ample time to build and maintain infrastructure.

Access to clean water is a human right.

Please sign this petition if you agree that it is time for an end to continuous water outages.
