A group of informal settlement residents in Cape Town have vowed not to vote in next year's elections if they do not get the water and sanitation they are constitutionally entitled to. "The right to water is the right to life," said the Social Justice Coalition's (SJC) Sbu Mdlankomo on the steps of the Cape Town Civic Centre following a march through the CBD on Thursday.Reading a memorandum on behalf of the Social Justice Coalition movement, he said the Day Zero fear of running out of water during the drought was only a problem for those who had water in the first place."The City of Cape Town is now lauded internationally for its water saving strategies – water we do not have," he said."The water tariffs have been adjusted and the anger has subsided, but we still have no water. While others breathe sighs of relief we are still in crisis, we have always been in crisis!"Protest outside Civic Centre in Cape Town for toilets and water in underserviced areas @TeamNews24 Striking bus drivers watching.
