The minister said water-related problems were being felt in all provinces of the Eastern Cape, as well as the Western Cape and North West. he noted the poor availability of clean water in large cities.
In the Cape region, Mpumalanga, the minister noted, "there is no clean drinking water and that is not a surprise," he added. South Africans are "trying to get by" on dwindling water supplies, he stated.
While the government is trying to bring in more water projects, there is still insufficient water to meet demand.
