South African water reservoirs are expected to run completely dry in three-weeks.
There is no sufficient rain on forecast to make any difference. Reservoirs in Gauteng are drying up two times faster than the rest of the country. The only province that can make it until December with less or no rain is Limpopo, Apparently they do not use much water in the province and some of their water will be shipped to Gauteng.
President Jacob Zuma had advice people to stay away from showers unless it’s an emergency.
“Use showers when it’s necessary, but rather use condoms to avoid having to shower. Also please talk to the gods to bring us rain, talk to Queen Modjadji”
Meanwhile the minister of Water and Sanitation Nomvula Mokonyane advised people to take bath in groups, drink more beer, juice and gin more than water. “Use water you take a bath on to wash your clothes and dishes”
