Dit is reeds meer as ‘n maand sedert die Nasionale Rampbestuursentrum die droogte tot nasionale ramp verklaar het. Nogtans, ten spyte van talle versoeke deur die Demokratiese Alliansie (DA) dat Premier Oscar Mabuyane daadwerklik moet optree, het die Oos-Kaapse regering nog niks gedoen om droogtegeteisterde boere by te staan nie.

The residents of Nelson Mandela Bay have been left to fend for themselves during the most debilitating drought on record, as the ANC-led national government has refused to accept its drought disaster application.
