President Jacob Zuma has called for an urgent end to water contamination.
The president says that spillage of sewerage into South Africa’s water supplies would lead to water undrinkable.
Zuma was speaking during the official launch of the upgrade of the Nsezi Water treatment plant in Richards Bay this afternoon.
Zuma said the country must deal with the spillage of sewerage into our water supplies and other forms of contamination.
He says if we don’t deal with it urgently our water will end up undrinkable because of the high levels of contamination.
