Clement Manyathela spoke to Cape Town mayor Don Plato and Johannesburg mayoral spokesperson Mlimandela Ndamase.

Cape Town mayor Dan Plato says it is all systems go with regard to essential services in the city and that he does not expect any disruptions.

On Monday, President Cyril Ramaphosa said essential services would continue to run as per usual.

He has urged the public to continue to communicate issues of service delivery.

At the depots, our teams are on the ground. If there is a problem with regard to electricity provision it gets dealt with, the same with the refuse removal - we experienced some problems over the last two days with that but I think by tomorrow that problem should be out of the way.

Dan Plato, Cape Town Mayor

If there are water problems etc, whatever the nature of the service delivery concerns, we will be on top of that.

Dan Plato, Cape Town Mayor

Johannesburg mayoral spokesperson Mlimandela Ndamase says, like the City of Cape Town, the City of Joburg has activated all its essential services.

PikitUp is on the ground working continuously throughout the 21 days. Johannesburg water is on standby with all its teams and what we have gone further to do is that we have cancelled all planned interruptions in terms of water supply and our teams will only be focusing on emergencies.

Mlimandela Ndamase, Johannesburg mayor spokesperson

City Power [is] similarly on the ground, ready to respond to any unplanned interruptions and our Johannesburg Metro Police Department is working very closely with the SAPS and the South African National Defence Force to ensure we are able to maintain law and order and enforce the regulations as they have been stipulated by the government gazette.
