South Africa risks running dry of water if people fail to preserve it. Water and Environmental Affairs Deputy Minister Rejoice Mabudafhasi issued the warning yesterday at a two-day Water and Poverty Alleviation: a Dialogue for Action in Durban.

She said because of natural disasters, such as floods and droughts, the country might experience food insecurity and hunger.

“South Africa is a water-stressed country. We need to harvest water because failure to do so will result in water shortages.”

Mabudafhasi said it was important to recycle water as it was key in the production of food, which could be consumed or sold.

eThekwini municipality chief whip, Fawzia Peer, echoed Mabudafhasi’s sentiments, saying preserving water should be part of people’s daily life.
