EFF Shivambu Says Water Crisis In South Africa Is Man-Made

Deputy Water and Sanitation Minister David Mahlobo, on the other hand, stated that Gauteng, one of the provinces highlighted by the EFF, does not have a water problem in terms of availability.

Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) deputy president Floyd Shivambu has stated that the crisis of water provision in South Africa is not a result of unforeseen natural disasters but rather a man-made problem.

Shivambu emphasized that the poor water management and governance by the governing party are to blame for the current situation. This topic was discussed in the National Assembly on Friday, where Shivambu sponsored the discussion on the water provision crisis.
