Xolani's Daily Comment

Xolani reflects on the Water Crisis

+What else is there to talk about other than this water crisis? <br><br>Remember the rhyme of the ancient mariner? 'Water water everywhere and not a drop to drink. That’s exactly what’s happening'. <br><br>Yesterday we spoke to Mike Muller about the water issue, he says the dams are full and the rivers are flowing but all of that is useless because rand water cannot pump water to us the consumers. <br><br>Rand Water has been working for 110 years and has been pumping water reliably for over 110 years, what has gone wrong? What has changed around the basics of good water management? Why are managers not asking the basic questions of what if we tried this? <br><br>Where is the Minister of Water & Sanitation when we need her most? <br><br>The issue at hand is that the economy and people’s lives are put in danger, it’s a difficult situation but we need answers. We need to figure out how we turn this situation around so that at the end of the day the citizens aren’t the losers. How do we turn this situation around? <br><br>
