Presidential Hotline gets Thumbs up from the people
Citizens of Mpolweni village in Alice have given thumbs up to the Presidential Hotline. This was expressed through a letter that was written by Nobantu Ntshekisa to the Presidential Hotline.
“We are thankful to the Hotline, and would like to encourage other people to contact the office of the President if they have unresolved queries service delivery related matters” said Ntshekisa in her letter to the Hotline.
Ntshekisa is one of 96 people from Mpolweni village who were forcefully removed from their settlement by the previous government in 1985. After their removal, a dam was built in their place. A few years ago they made an application for compensation through the Land claims.
In partnership with the Land Claims Commissioner, the Presidential Hotline facilitated the reimbursement of the 96 households.
The Presidential Hotline number is 17737
