Abandoned water pipes by a previous contractor and a farmer resisting eviction from the pipeline route are some of the challenges the Masama 100km pipeline project is currently encountering.

But the company remains upbeat about its mission and determination to have laid the last pipes by end of next month.

According to Khato Civils Group brand architect, Neo Molefakgotla the company encountered the abandoned pipes on the route of their project. Molefakgotla added the process of removing the pipes left by a previous contractor is expected to be completed by December 15, 2020 while a farmer who was ordered to make way for the construction of the pipeline was yet to move. “The encroachment challenges have not been completely resolved. There is a team of highly capable individuals dealing with this matter, and I have total confidence this will be resolved soon,” Molefakgotla said.
