Provincial Water Forum heads for Komani

The Member of the Executive Committee (MEC) of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs, Fikile Xasa together with Provincial Head for Water and Sanitation, Portia Makhanya in the Eastern Cape will host an Eastern Cape Provincial Water Forum (PROWAF) in Komani next week.

The event will take place on November 23 at Roydon Private Nature Reserve outside the town.

According to a statement by the Water Affairs and Sanitation Department, the purpose of PROWAF is to develop a common vision for the water sector and promote joint decision making between stakeholders in the achievement of the water sector goals.  These pressing challenges have led to service delivery protests that are rife in the communities while the province has been faced with a water crisis due to drought, services backlogs, unreliable supply of water due to operational matters, the pollution of the environment and general capacity to manage Water Service Authorities (WSA) functions by other municipalities and poor planning.
