The DA has welcomed the announcement that the City of Cape Town has avoided Day Zero, subsequently leading to a lifting of water restrictions.
The Democratic Alliance (DA) released a statement on Thursday, 22 October 2020, announcing that the City of Cape Town has successfully avoided the threat of Day Zero in its water crisis. The city was one of the popular metropolitans that made headlines in recent years for being days away from having no water, as its water reserves were extremely low.
In a turn of events, that is no longer the case. The DA stated, “We see the lifting of water restrictions as a shining example of a competent and committed government working in partnership with a great commitment from residents to achieve this.”
The statement further elaborated on the measures that the party put in place to accomplish the feat. In conclusion, the DA claimed that some municipalities, outside its governance, have already reached Day Zero, due to the alleged poor governance of the officials.
