"We must remember that our consumption patterns continue and therefore in as much as we might see an improvement maybe over the next few days, it is still early days.

According to the weather service, they have predicted above-average rainfall in the middle of December and February so that is where we are looking at", said Ratau.

Ratau said the department is working with various stakeholders to ensure proper infrastructure support throughout the country.
