Rand Water cuts supply to three municipalities over unpaid debt

# Rand Water has taken drastic action, reducing water supply to Merafong, Ngwathe, and Victor Khanye municipalities in Gauteng, Free State and Mpumalanga due to outstanding debts. The owed amounts, totalling over a billion-rand, have left the water utility struggling since 2019. With significant arrears endangering service provision, Rand Water has reduced supply by 20-percent, highlighting the critical impact of non-payment on water services’ operational integrity and institutional functionality.
