Speaking in Johannesburg at a press conference, Mokonyane said that the government of the Western Cape must not be afraid to pay interests, because Cape Town is in critical need of Water at the moment.
“I know when you borrow water from other countries, they normally charge interests. But I don’t think the Western Cape has the option to choose whether or not they should borrow. Beggars are not choosers.
We can borrow water from other countries or the Reserve Bank for the people of Cape Town. We can use helicopters to bring the water in, I have seen that happening in movies. Money won’t curb #DayZero, we must borrow or adapt”, Mokonyane said.
