A SURVEY to determine "the will and view" of the residents of troubled Moutse district - on the border of Limpopo and Mpumalanga - is in full swing.

The people of Moutse were removed from Mpumalanga and unilaterally incorporated into Limpopo by the Municipal Demarcation Board five years ago. This led to the birth of the Moutse Demarcation Forum to demand their re-incorporation into Mpumalanga.

Last week, Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs Minister Sicelo Shiceka announced a five-day community consultative process, which took the form of a referendum that started on Monday.

The divided community would be voting on what province they wanted to fall under. A total of 33 voting stations have been opened around the villages . - Mckeed Kotlolo
