Ndlala said they will take the matter up with the Mopani district municipality.
Two of the three drones are deployed in the area to capture pictures and video footage while the bigger-sized one is fitted with a loudspeaker to deliver the government's message to targeted communities.
The bigger drone has a recorded voice of the mayor Maripe Mangena speaking in North Sotho and Tsonga, encouraging residents to adhere to social distancing and go out only when necessary.
One drone captures a live video which is viewed from a monitor inside a car operating it and police officers are on standby to enforce the regulations where they spot transgressions.
A number of children playing in the streets were left in awe as the drones hovered above their heads.
Local induna Piet Shipalani said the message from the drones was very important during the coronavirus crisis.
"Everyone, including the children and old, can easily hear the message. But is up to us to make sure we follow what is said and stop doing the opposite," he said.
Ndlala said the drones have been effective in monitoring compliance of the lockdown rules.
"We have identified certain areas such as Bolobedu South, Maake and Dan as hotspots for noncompliance. A few days ago we managed to disperse a crowd which was hiding and drinking alcohol, we then directed the loudspeaker to where they were," he said.
Ndlala said the municipality had spent R62,000 for five days for the use of the drones.
The service provider Ntiyiso Aviation Services's managing director Jack Shilubani said the drones can fly higher than 200 metres. "But here we fly at 35 metres because there are no high trees and it can cover over a kilometre radius. We operate the drones ourselves because you need a licence to conduct it."
