JOHANNESBURG - Gift of the Givers is on a drive to collect water for Capetonians.

The foundation has set up nearly 59 collection points around the country.

 

It’s asking the public to support its efforts by donating five litres of bottled water.

WATCH: ‘Day Zero’ can be avoided, says Mokonyane

This comes as Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa labelled the water crisis a total disaster.

As Cape Town rapidly dries up, Water and Sanitation Minister Nomvula Mokonyane and Western Cape Premier Helen Zille locked horns.

Zille accused the national water department of failing to declare a disaster on time, while Mokonyane is insisting that her department declared the disaster two years ago.
