African Municipal Workers Union says it welcomes the introduced control
measures by the Minister of the Department of Water and Sanitation today, to
save water in South Africa.
The Union says
it has noted the serious state of affairs of decreasing levels of water
national dams ranging from just above 60%.
Spokesperson Chumani Gqeke says…
“We call upon the Minister
that any relief fund that will be released to the affected people, such fund
must be used for the intended purposes.They must not be used for corrupt
practices or tenderpreneurship.
We encourage public to use
water sparingly. Government must lead a campaign that is about teaching people
against polluting water.
He says “It’s crucial that
we reserve water from origin, where it is coming from so that we become a
nation that is full of water for household use and also for business.”
