NMBM fears that day zero has arrived

No water trucks available as Nelson Mandela Bay hit by outages​

With Nelson Mandela Bay facing an array of water outages, it has now emerged that the supply of water trucks has dried up.

The DA said on Wednesday this was because the metro had not paid contractors, while the metro said it was “a contractual matter related to payments”.

DA caucus leader Retief Odendaal said the situation was unacceptable.

“Notwithstanding the various water outages across the metro currently, there are unfortunately no water trucks available to be deployed.

“This is as a result of the metro neglecting to pay contractors which have now withdrawn their fleet.

“I will liaise with the department of water and sanitation to see if they can assist our residents during this latest emergency.
