Water wars rage on

The Minister of Water and Sanitations, Nomvula Mokonyane, has noted several political utterances by the Premier of the Western Cape, Ms Helen Zille, and the leader of the Democratic Alliance (DA), Mmusi Maimane, with regards to the water crisis in the Western Cape and in particular, Cape Town.

“What the Premier and leader of the Democratic Alliance have sought to do is to absolve themselves of their responsibilities in the management of the water crisis through an attempt to mischievously create scapegoats and shift the blame on the seriousness of the water crisis to national government and the Minister in particular,” said Mokonyane.

Mokonyanen together with the City of Cape Town and the provincial ministry of Local Government, Environment and Development Planning in the Western Cape have held several meetings in an massive effort to manage the effects of the drought on the residents.
