Water plan

Human Settlements, Water and Sanitation spokesperson Makhosini Mgitywa gives insight on what is happening in the department.

The Eastern Cape has received much-needed rain over the past week, however, a lot needs to be done to tackle drought in that province.

Recently, Minister for Human Settlements, Water and Sanitation Lindiwe Sisulu set aside R300 million for drought relief in the Northern Cape, which has been declared a disaster area.

In November Sisulu unveiled an R898 billion water plan to deal with the drought and to provide water security in the country.

To find out how these plans by the government are going, Bongani Bingwa chats to the department's spokesperson Makhosini Mgitywa.

Mgitywa says a third of South Africans do not have access to reliable access to potable water.

Half of South Africans do not have access to decent sanitation, which means that those people are being denied their right to dignity. This is not only about the R899 billion that is spoken about, but there is also an invitation innovation.

Makhosini Mgitywa, Spokesperson - Human Settlements, Water and Sanitation

There is room to talk about supplying South Africans with water and talk about the problems that are faced by the department.

There are about 800 cases of fraud, maladministration and corruption that are being investigated in the department.
