Access to water is a constitutional right, not a privilege.
But right now, 1 in 3 people in South Africa don’t have access to safe or reliable water. That’s about 20 million people.
Decades of corruption and the mismanagement of public funds has weakened the Department of Water and Sanitation’s ability to deliver access to safe and reliable water.
Minister Lindiwe Sisulu has the opportunity to change the current situation. She has denied that access to water is an issue in South Africa – but her team has been forced to draw up emergency plans to deliver water to those most in need during the COVID-19 pandemic. It is time to make safe running water an everyday reality for everyone, always.
Join us in calling on the Minister of Human Settlements, Water and Sanitation, Lindiwe Sisulu, to recognise that many people in South Africa are denied their constitutional right to water, and to publicly commit to providing equal access to water for everyone – now and always.
