Emfuleni water crisis: Cadre deployment costs SA huge amount of already scarce water


Emfuleni Municipality in Gauteng complains it is ‘understaffed and under-resourced’ which is why it has spent R65m on overtime for water entity workers… but still loses more than half of its water at a cost of R500 million per year. According to the municipality, the water entity could not handle all the reports during working hours and had to pay workers overtime. Would we be too cynical to wonder if the workforce found itself “overwhelmed” during daylight hours, but could somehow get through the night at “time and a half”? Or would it be unfair…
