CAPE TOWN - Members of Parliament debated the drought, and the handling of the water crisis, in the National Assembly.

This after the City of Cape Town announced that Day Zero was being moved to 2019 on condition that Capetonians continued to save water.

There&39;s been a lot of criticism around the handling of the crisis, with political parties at loggerheads and blaming one another for the catastrophe.

Earlier MPs discussed the outbreak of listeriosis.
