This week SABC Digital News is focusing on water shortages and the drought affecting many provinces of South Africa. Many people are aware of the problems in the Western Cape and Cape Town specifically. Few of us however, unless one is directly affected, are aware of what is happening in the rest of the country.

On Monday SABC looked at the Eastern Cape and the dire drought there, with Butterworth basically on ZERO. On Wednesday we highlight KwaZulu-Natal, where water restrictions have been experienced and some communities go without water for a week or more.
