Hammanskraal cholera horror
Politicians had piled into town. Outrage and pledges followed. But more than four months after the devastating cholera outbreak in May, the decades-long water crisis in Hammanskraal north of Pretoria persists. The source of May's cholera outbreak remains unknown, compelling residents to fundraise for boreholes and cleaner water access. The President and other officials admitted their failure to protect the people. The municipality, supplying water via trucks that cost hundreds of millions of rands cannot guarantee their safety. In the midst of this ongoing crisis, a class action lawsuit is being launched against the government for its constitutional failures. Carte Blanche examines the enduring impact of the water crisis on families that contrasts sharply with the government's response. As the Hammanskraal water crisis continues to affect the lives of its residents, the call for justice and clean water grows ever stronger.
