Since colonial times black South Africans have been accustomed to cruelty, neglect and indifference on the part of successive governments. The apartheid government reduced these brutalities to a fine art form, resulting in the system being declared a crime against humanity.

The University of Cape Town is not only putting short-term plans and water-management measures in place toward avoiding Day Zero, but is investing significantly in becoming a water-wise, water-efficient campus into the future. Acting VC, Professor Loretta Feris, yesterday issued a statement outlining UCT's current planning to avoid closure in the event of Day Zero. One of the core strategies is to encourage members of the UCT Community to be part of the 40% who currently are effecting the required water savings (ie. below 87litres per person per day now, and 50litres per person per day come 1st Feb - although we should all have reduced our water usage to 50litres per person per day already). Every saved drop counts!
