MM pleaded guilty and sentenced

The Municipal Manager of Thaba Chweu Local         Municipality pleaded guilty of transgressions regarding waste water polluting water sources.  This was quite a battle to convince the courts to take the case, but it was heard and succeeded.  The damages payable is R5 million of which R4,8 million will be applied to repair the failing infrastructure.  This is a watershed case and will be applied to take further such cases to court—for sure!
