Cape Town - While Cape Town is expecting Day Zero on 16 April,

two farm towns in the Eastern Cape might see Day Zero even sooner.

Despite heavy rain and flash floods that recently took place, the

Kouga dam is at a critically low level - individually‚ at 9.95%.

According to Nelson Mandela Bay (NMB), the severe drought in

Hankey and Patensie in the Gamtoos Valley prompted the

Kouga Municipality to introduce strict water rationing.
