JOHANNESBURG – The City of Tshwane says their reservoirs in Soshanguve are completely empty, as the country continues to experience water shortage.

The Department of Water and Sanitation has announced that it will be cutting water supply to all Gauteng municipalities due to a lack of willingness by consumers to save water.

It also says the drought continues to negatively affect dam levels across the country with most reaching unprecedented low levels.

The city says people should continue to use the resource sparingly and will implement water shedding where the reservoirs levels are low in the metro.

Spokesperson, Lindela Mashigo said, “Soshanguve continues to be functionally empty, we have seven trucks on the ground. Communities are urged to use water sparingly.”
