Lack Of Rain Is Not A Political Problem

I hear some are planning to hold some demonstrations to show their displeasure about lack of water. Political fanatics trying hard to score political points using the painful lack of water are somehow devoid of nature.

Perhaps this is the right time to remind even those in opposition problems that even if they were ruling the country at this juncture, the country would still be experiencing drought and the world would still be reeling under painful effects of climate change. Even if there were to be change in government now, drought would not go away. We are all in the meantime hoping the north-south carrier comes to our rescue and deliver to the south, the much needed water to quench our thirsts. The north – south water carrier will also in the near future not be enough to supply the whole country with water. Fact.

The north – south water carrier keeps bursting not only because of its unadoptable conditions but also that volumes of water passing through it have had to be increased to try to meet the demand necessitated by the drying of Gaborone Dam. It is the civil servants and private contractors working on the north – south water carrier and not the politicians. It is a matter left to experts to ensure that the little drop of water available is shared equally by those in need.
