Over the last three years, the South African tourist destination Cape Town has suffered drought with very little rainfall
The drought crisis has forced Cape Town municipality authorities to ration consumption to 50 litres (11 gallons) per individual per day.
However the Cape Town drought has reached a crisis point with Cape Town residents now urged to turn off their toilet cistern water supply and advised to use all of the waste water in their homes from washing, to fill their toilet cisterns and at the same time limit flushing.
Residents are advised not to shower more than twice a week and save water. Residents are living in fear of what has become known as an approaching ‘Day Zero’ when water supply will be completely turned off when taps run dry from the drought. More news to follow. By Sibusiso Ngwenya
