In Africa you need to look after yourself. You need to be self-sufficient. Driving along some streets I see green water tanks on some corners and some trailer water tanks from local government. But after three day without water in some areas most people started to panic. With no water to buy in close by shops.. I took 5 litre water bottles and was driving around late at night making sure everybody that works for me had water. Almost all of my clients got new water tanks in the last two months – as part of their system. But that too was not enough and they were shocked when I informed them they had no water left.
Some areas received water; others in Pretoria run dry without any notification. I’ve been without water for four days earlier this year. I am glad now – sometimes you learn much faster in hard times
