President Cyril Ramaphosa has blamed corruption as being a significant contributor in the water and drought crisis currently facing the country.

Writing in his weekly newsletter 'From the desk of the President', Ramaphosa says the country will need around R126-billion to build water infrastructure to ensure future water security.

He said the government had already provided R260-million to address drought this year, including support to farmers to purchase fodder, reticulate water for livestock and for dam distilling.

“Given the severity of the crisis, this amount is woefully inadequate. Disaster Management is working with provinces and municipalities to see how they can reprioritise their budgets for relief and recovery,” Ramaphosa said.

People gave you power to delegate for them but instead of fighting for people it’s like the country has no President Take action instead of moarning Mr President

Top court blasts SA law on hate speech as Jon Qwelane let off for gay slurControversial former diplomat and 'gay is not OK' columnist Jon Qwelane has scored a surprise victory in the Supreme Court of Appeal, in a ruling that could set back SA's efforts to curb racism and hate speech On the up side, the judgment is really good for freedom of speech. “JUST JON” in the Star News Paper during Apartheid was my favorite column because of its candour and forthrightness ...EVEN TODAY,HE REMAINS JUST THAT:JUST JON! Yes and free up some time for the SAHRC and the NMF.

He's right, it's corruption by the same ANC. He's now confessing that the whole ANC is corrupt. 😂😂😂😂It fine let him speak and till every one see there no leadership there it empty Ramablamer mxm!! Lair he is the one and only to point a finger too... cadredoom CyrilRamaphosa so in other words blaming the ANC , just so we clear ! As the ANC is under investigation for corruption !

Tshwane's sex scandal MMC Sheila Senkubuge is 'not a SA citizen'The City of Tshwane was told about former roads and transport MMC Sheila Senkubuge's questionable citizenship status as far back as 2017. She was put there by white tenderpreneurs She is a foreigner just like the Guptas yet she was still employed by the City of Tshwane ahead of qualified South Africans, all because of some loose zips, SIES....... What a way to describe her 'sex scandal MMC'

Are you listening MamaAction_RSA? Corruption? Incompetence and lack of political will more like it! We want a State of Emergency and the ANC to step aside....if only. Who is corruption? And who’s fault is that 'BLAMING CORRUPTION'? The President must give us the names of those corrupt individuals & tells us which organization they belong to.

Ok so you have found something to blame for our problems. Now please fix it these guys are still free and NPA is doing what ? He was part of this corruption , so he must blame himself ...corruption by your comrades...CyrilRamaphosa I honestly no longer take you seriously... Why does it appear that we africans is unable to analyse problem statement plan and execute

Start by stopping the madness that is renovating the ministers homes. That money should help towards water security for all citizens, not the benefit of a few ! That's your party bro If thats the case. Why we dnt see those who hv hands in the jam in orange overall? Huh? Anc has faild dizmally to run this country. DA is a party tp take SA forward

Blame everybody and everything but yourself and Jamnandas Especially in the North West province Incompetence, the ANC did not service dams which are broken down and are unable to collect water And? Will he fire the minister, or is it just talk? He was the deputy president so he should know better; who did what and when ; he must go to police and report corruption and fraud

Can he please go to police to open a case against that are responsible for such Lendoda bakithi

And guess what is he doing about it? Appointing the previous minister responsible for water. We he ever take action against the pepertrators FraudWatchZA OMW the poor old man is in trouble again he was warned not to fill the nkandla pool This calls for Mama Action 👆 ANC corruption perhaps? But the President is always complaining and apologising when he's actually the first person who must act. He was also complaining about failure of the Justice System yet he's at the helm. Fire somebody already so that people can value their jobs.👇

Surely when a political regime is as inept and corrupt as the ANC regime, it's grounds to call for a state of emergency and have them placed under administration? Not so? Our President sees corruption everywhere, even in water. Nah ntate it's your Cadres who caused this. He is the master of stating the obvious !!!! What would be refreshing do something bold.

Cyril is hopeless. Was he not deputy president then? Can you be anymore lethargic?🤬 Lol CyrilRamaphosa PresidencyZA don't u know where Mama action MamaAction_RSA works Dare waste another cent on this depthless sewage pool Corruption is the code name for Zuma in case you didn't know Please be shocked you may take a dip in the good old Vaal

Take from that 3 trillion raised water is a need On the nail !!! ProudlyBroughtByANC

FraudWatchZA Really? You forever in need of money Really wow you only see that now but what did u see as Deputy under ZUMA You sat there with all those involved and did NOTHING. DailyNewsSA 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 no comment. CORRUPTION BY YOUR OWN GOVERNMENT CREW!!THEY RAN DOWN THIS COUNTRY AND NOW POO HAS HIT THE FAN!!

FraudWatchZA Look who's talking 4 Luckily he blames corruption, I blame the incompetence of MYANC that continuously deploy incompetent cadres with the ideology that they fought apartheid & they deserve to rub each others backs. CyrilRamaphosa is part of the incompetence as he continues to deploy useless cadres

But no1 is arrested*him is also corrupt! Why not blame Apartheid like lots of others do About time you blame corruption, but what are you doing about it, SA will end of like Zim, total collapse, of it is not addressed as a National Security Issue
