The Department of Water and Sanitation (DWS) is working to “achieve more with less”, with Water and Sanitation Minister Gugile Nkwinti having presented a R15.57-billion budget for 2018/19 on Tuesday. Historical commitments not adequately budgeted for, budgetary constraints influenced by challenges emanating from previous financial years and preliminary contract commitments are expected to cut into the budget for the year, the Minister Gugile Nkwinti said.
