South Africa: Cosatu Shocked to Learn That the City of Cape Town Under Spent On Budget By 40 Percent

press release

The decision to increase the cost of water to the residence of Cape Town to raise funds is something we totally find unacceptable. These cost increases are placing extra hardships on workers and the poorer communities in Cape Town. The levies and rates increases that are now also added to the cost of services in CT are impoverishing people.

This increase also poses real threats to the survival of many industries and the jobs associated with them. The City leaders have no clue on how to deal with this water crisis and ensure the citizens are not compromised. Cosatu is going to lead the people of Cape Town into a march to the City offices on May Day (01 May2018), to demand an end to the miss management of water crisis and end to high water bills and water management devices.
