Johannesburg - North West premier Thandi Modise on Sunday assured farmers in the province that her office was doing its best to get them their required financial assistance to deal with a drought.

"Processes to access the R400m emergency relief grant to assist the 23 346 farmers....to save close to one million livestock units across the province are at an advanced stage," she said in a statement.

She said R50m of the emergency relief grant that the province was expecting to be transferred in the next week would be targeted for rehabilitation of water reticulation infrastructure such as boreholes and windmills.

That would be used to alleviate drinking water shortages currently experienced in Mamusa, Greater Taung, Kagisano-Molopo and Ditsobotla, she said.
