Cape Town – Trade union federation Fedusa on Wednesday warned South Africa was sitting on a water crisis “time bomb”.

Citing “inadequate management and monitoring” by water service authorities, Fedusa said it had filed notice with the National Economic Development and Labour Council (Nedlac) of possible protest action.

“Fedusa… decided that the best way to make South Africans as well as its government aware of the true state of water was by filing a section 77 in respect of possible protest action,” the federation said in a statement.
