CAPE TOWN - Capetonians won’t have to deal with the controversial drought levy.
The City of Cape Town has voted against the proposal, after a massive public outcry.
Instead, the city will punish those who fail to save water.
The Western Cape is experiencing its worst drought in a hundred years.
The city’s introduced even tougher restrictions starting in February.
Residents will be limited to 50 litres of water per person per day.
