Gift of the Givers Withdraws From Makhanda as Taps Run Dry

South Africa's world-renowned charity organisation Gift of the Givers has withdrawn its help from Makhanda, saying the government paid private companies for some of the work it had done in the town. Imtiaz Sooliman, the charity's CEO, said that "while the charity maintained an amicable relationship with the municipality, the government edged it out of millions of rand spent during the height of the water crisis."
