‘The political and social mess as a city runs out of water … brilliantly probed and scrutinised by an unrelenting Olver.’ – Jacques Pauw
‘Superb! This is public interest writing at its best.’ – Adam Habib
It’s 2018 and Cape Town is wracked by its worst drought on record. The prospect of ‘Day Zero’ – when the taps will run dry – is driving citizens into a frenzy. Then the ruling Democratic Alliance removes control of the water issue from Mayor Patricia de Lille.
While politicians turn on each other, revealing deep-lying faultlines and new enmities, it raises a critical question: who will lead the Mother City through the crisis?
