New #DayZero Date Announced for Cape Town

The arrival of Day Zero has been pushed back from 12 to 16 April, Democratic Alliance leader Mmusi Maimane has said. This comes as The SA Democratic Teachers' Union described the Western Cape government as "incompetent", claiming it is leaving schools to fend for themselves during the crisis, while Cape Town Deputy Mayor Ian Nielson said plans to build additional desalination plants in the city are currently at the tender stage.
