Water has been restored in some parts of Johannesburg following a 58-hour water shutdown by Rand Water. According to SABC News, the maintenance and upgrades of its water infrastructure caused the water cuts. The shutdown started on Tuesday night and ended on Friday.
Some residents in Soweto complained about the lack of water tankers on Thursday. Others had to walk long distances to fetch water from neighbouring communities.
Rand Water has stated that the full water restoration will take time as some reservoirs have run dry and need replenishment. Despite this, residents in some areas have reported that water has started coming out of their taps.
