    Globehunters doing the responsible thing and advising tourists not to drink South Africa's water, I would go so far as to say if you have an open wound, make sure it's covered and water can't get in or disinfect immediately after a shower.

    South Africa's waterways, catchments and river systems are full of raw sewage, on top of this the country is on load shedding which means many water pumps don't work, leaving several communities without any water.

    A recent National Water and Sanitation Master Plan have also predicted South Africa will run out of water in 10 years... some communities are already living this reality.

    I believe the international community needs to assist NOW or South Africa will become an apocalyptic hell of death and disease, more so than it already is.

    A government in denial... or facing elections in May

    The international community helped SA rid itself of apartheid. Now you want them to save SA from itself? South Africa is taking possession of farmland owned by whites. Starvation will be next.

    There is no room for "I told you so's" Pippette... no room for spite or self interest. South Africans are in this together.

    Here is more

    A crisis far bigger than Eskom
    The National Water and Sanitation Master Plan is sombre reading.

    ok the water situation is now a complete disaster... the SANDF were suppose to fix it but the money have gone missing (euphemism for stolen)

    500,000 litres of raw sewage is flowing into the Vaal River daily

    So they killed or otherwise evicted whites. Should we care? Let 'white privilege' fix it. I'm sure @Renee
    has some input.

    Whites have been fired from government positions and Black Economic Empowerment laws brought in (Affirmative action on steroids) to enforce the replacement of employees based on skin colour.. not skills. The result have been higher inequality than there were even during Apartheid due to corruption & nepotism as well as gross mismanagement due to lack of knowledge how to run the country.... currently all State owned enterprises are corrupt, over 700 billion Rand stolen, the health system is collapsing and have caused harm to more than 20 000 patients in one year and raw sewerage is now contaminating the drinking water. All the money in treasury is also gone..

    It would seem that white privilege brings the majority of people food, water, health, sanitary living conditions and affluence.... whilst black privilege... well it kills

    The government says the water is safe. That means the water the government elite is drinking is safe. It comes from France, in bottles.
