Lesotho Water: OUTA holds Minister to account on Gauteng’s water future

The Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse (OUTA) is taking the first steps towards legal action against the government to secure the future of water supply to Gauteng. This arises from OUTA’s report on the situation at the Lesotho Highland Water Project Phase Two (LHWP II), which exposes maladministration in the project

“This project was supposed to provide water to Gauteng next year, yet it hasn’t started and now it’s estimated that the project will not supply any water before 2025,” says Julius Kleynhans, Portfolio Director for Water at OUTA. “The minister has failed in her duty to proactively ensure water supply to the region and she continues to fail. We the citizens must hold the minister accountable.” Get more
