Motion Without Notice:

Ms L Mabija moved without notice that the Council:-

1. Notes the devastating storms that hit the villages of Rosenkrantz, Mamehlabe and Pinkie-Sebotse in Aganang Local Municipality in Limpopo last week that have left 104 families homeless;

2. Further notes that a local high school was also hit and damaged extensively in that certain class rooms were among others destroyed which impacts severely on existing infrastructure that is already inadequate and under pressure;

3. Welcomes the interventions of the Aganang Local Municipality, the Capricorn District Municipality, the South African Social Security Services and the Provincial Department of Cooperative Governance have come to the rescue of these families and assisted them with food, blankets and shelter; and

4. Takes this opportunity to call on the relevant national- and provincial departments as well as the local- and district municipalities to render further assistance to resettle these families as soon as possible.

I so move.
