In his address to the public yesterday, Minister in the Presidency Mr. Jackson Mthembu said that Cabinet remains concerned about the intensity and increase of Covid19 infections in the Western Cape. President Cyril Ramaphosa will be in Cape Town tomorrow to assess the Western Cape’s provincial response to the pandemic.
Minister Mthembu said Cabinet had noted the recent drop in dam levels, particularly in the Western Cape. As a water-scarce country, the dam levels have a negative impact on our water needs. Cabinet therefore makes an appeal to all of us to use water sparingly
