Villagers in Amathole District Municipality continue without water for months on end despite the Covid-19 pandemic.
Villagers in Ngqushwa in the Eastern Cape say they have marched and sent petitions to authorities but little relief has been provided to their shortage of water.
On Saturday a group of about 100 pensioners took to the streets of Cape Town against increased water tariffs and evictions.
The water tariffs that kicked in on the 1st of July are seen as an attack on the poor by activists.
Unions and communities marched against the steep tariff increases that the City of Cape Town is proposing.
During her budget speech in March, Cape Town Mayor Patricia de Lille announced a rise in water tariffs to deal with the water crisis in Cape Town. With Day Zero being moved to next year, the City is adamant that the tariffs will ensure that they deliver the services at the required level.
The current water restrictions are already affecting small businesses that rely on water, like hair salons, car-washes and laundry businesses which are struggling to keep up.
With just over 70 days to Day Zero, community groups from different communities in Cape Town marched to the Civic Centre to register their dissatisfaction with the way the City of Cape Town has and is continuing to manage the water crisis.
