City offers support to Nelson Mandela Bay on looming Day Zero<p>All South Africans share a sense of great concern about the current water crisis facing Nelson Mandela Bay and the prospect that the metro will run out of water before the end of June.</p><p>On Friday, I wrote to the Mayor of Nelson Mandela Bay Metro, Eugené Johnson, to offer Cape Town’s technical advice, assistance, and disaster management support.</p><p>The threat of our own potential Day Zero in 2018 is still fresh in the memories of Capetonians as we too faced a devastating multi-year drought. Thankfully we avoided this, and we have learnt many valuable lessons from that crisis.</p><p>In the hope that there is still time to avoid the worst in Nelson Mandela Bay, the City of Cape Town would like to offer our help. </p><p>We will gladly make a team of our Disaster Risk Management (DRM) officials, as well as technical and engineering teams, available to assist in whichever way possible.</p><p><strong>End</strong></p>2022-06-20T22:00:00ZGP0|#1d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70;L0|#01d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70|City news;GTSet|#62efe227-07aa-45e7-944c-ceebacca891dGP0|#90b49a62-96e2-436a-9c68-187c9ab33534;L0|#090b49a62-96e2-436a-9c68-187c9ab33534|Mayor;GTSet|#2e3de6c1-9951-4747-8f53-470629a399bb;GP0|#fb6a4cb2-efe5-4f39-b935-265cb5978c8f;L0|#0fb6a4cb2-efe5-4f39-b935-265cb5978c8f|support10
