CAPE TOWN - A third-year University of Cape Town civil engineering student, has developed a greywater system to solve the Cape Town water crisis.

Nkosinathi Nkomo, came up with the idea after he was unable to register this year due to lack of funds.

To raise funds, he decided to apply some of the knowledge he&39;d acquired  to come with a solution to the crisis.

His company, Aqua-Renu, reduces the amount of water people use at home and at work.
