CAPE TOWN - Coca-Cola has denied that they are meeting with the Water Crisis Coalition in Cape Town on Monday.

Priscilla Urquhart told eNCA.com that they have not received a request for a meeting.

Water Crisis Coalition is demanding answers about the company's water usage amid a crippling drought.

The soft drink giant is accused of failing to comply with the city's water restrictions.

The Water Crisis Coalition wants Coca-Cola to provide details on its daily usage, as well as its plans going forward.

The group represents nearly 80 community-based organisations.

It held a protest outside Western Cape Premier Helen Zille’s home last week, denouncing the province's handling of the crisis.

Day Zero is looming large -- that's the day the taps are expected to run dry.
