Water scarcity undermines lockdown efforts

by Clifford Mohuba in Monametse Atok…Water scarcity results in non compliance and non-adherence of the rules and regulations of the national lockdown. Water is a basic human need and in these trying times, everyone need water more than before but still some villages in rural areas struggle to access water as people only get water once a week and it depends on a reservoir whether it’s full or not. Sometimes it takes more than two weeks for a borehole to fill it up. Some villagers depends on streams or buying water from the ones who have boreholes in their homes. Some get water from their relatives and friends far from their homes that’s when sometimes you see people during the lockdown pushing wheelbarrows and some on donkey carts. That’s what the community of Monametse is facing daily.
