ANC to hold water summit in KZN

This is not a new issue that has struck the region, It has been there for an exceptionally long time. I would love to know why the ANC is only taking this matter to heart after so many years. Might it just be to gain political leverage instead of actual giving back to the people who voted for them in the first place.

The ANC in KwaZulu-Natal will address the province’s water crisis in a summit to be held before the end of the year, the party’s provincial secretary said on Monday.

The ANC found serious water shortages in northern Zululand and the Midlands, said ANC provincial secretary Sihle Zikalala.

“Some people have no running water and they don’t have nearby rivers to draw up water from. The situation is very serious,” he said.

Studies had shown that more than 400,000 people in KwaZulu-Natal had no access to clean water.

The provincial government last held a provincial water summit in 2005.

Zikalala said the ANC would invite government think tanks, water experts and the community to the meeting.

“We want to make sure that the resolutions of the previous summit are implemented. We want to deal with this water crisis,” he said.

More than four million people in South Africa have no access to clean water.

South Africa also has ageing infrastructure, unauthorised connections to its systems and a lack of skills and capacity in all three spheres of government.
