Tannie Nellie Frans, an elderly woman whoโ€™s been living in the area for over 50 years, waits for promised government houses to be built across the road from her home. Her community has also been promised a new school and a hospital, something theyโ€™ve needed for years. Despite repeated promises, Tannie Nellie hasnโ€™t seen a single contractor on the site. But in this province, unfulfilled promises are a regular feature of residentsโ€™ complaints and even the capital, Kimberley, hasnโ€™t been spared. Government has neglected the water system for decades and national funding has been misused and mismanaged by both provincial and local governments. Carte Blanche continues its election coverage in this forgotten part of the country. Find more exclusive content on Carte Blanche: The Podcast: https://linktr.ee/carteblanchetv
