Too little done too late by authorities, as Cape Town businesses plan for Day Zero

Cape Town businesses believe there has been “too much water politicking and too little sound planning” in response to the current water crisis and have started making their own plans for Day Zero, which is expected to occur on April 16. A Cape Chamber of Commerce and Industry survey shows that 79.4% of respondents see the water crisis as a threat to their businesses, compared with the 51.4% surveyed in October last year, with many believing that the authorities have done “too little too late”.
