The new ‘water’ tight plan for a leaking economy

The new plan which will be launched soon will save water, billions of rands and create thousands of jobs.

President Jacob Zuma on Tuesday said a plan to save water and billions of rands in losses, and create thousands of jobs, will be launched in Port Elizabeth at the end of the month.

The president was speaking on a range of issues from the state of the economy to job losses, as well as the electricity crisis and the new visa regulations. He gave  feedback at the presidential guesthouse on the promises he made during his State of the Nation Address in February.

Zuma said government is ready to launch its plan to save billions of rands lost through leaking taps.   “Government will train 15,000 artisans and plumbers who will fix leaking taps in their communities.”  He said government will continue with its five-point water and sanitation plan.   “Maintain and upgrade existing water and sanitation infrastructure, build new dams and develop ground water.”

The president said water is a critical resource to ensure economic development.


Zuma on Tuesday said as South Africa addresses the current energy crisis, economic growth will steadily improve.

He said once energy constraints ease, economic growth is expected to reach three percent within the next three years, adding that substantial progress has been made at Eskom to resolve the energy crisis.

Zuma also said renewable energy projects will provide an additional 6,000 megawatts in the next three years.
