The City of Cape Town has come under significant criticism from civil society and concerned residents for its response to the worst drought the city has experienced in 100 years. Most notably are the accusations levelled against the City for its Day Zero predictions and preparations.

Day Zero is Cape Town’s imminent doomsday, the date the taps may run dry and residents begin queuing for water.
