702's Ray White: If you don't deliver services you'll be punished at the polls

702's Ray White says the clock is ticking for municipalities to meet the needs of residents.

ANC-run Emfuleni has been hit by water cuts because the municipality failed to honour its payment arrangement with Rand Water and still owes billions of rand.

White says it is unacceptable that all should suffer and it is wrong that the collective should be punished.

The local municipality need to talk to those in areas where their bills are in arrears and set up some payment plan or individual action but the collective should not be punished.

It's not only the water problem, it is also garbage disposal, litter in the streets and also general neglect of that area. This has also emerged in many phone calls to this radio station.
