One swallow does not a summer make

During this week we have been blessed with solid rainfalls throughout South Africa, which at least brings relief to our farmers and stressed dams.

However, just as the old saying One Swallow does not a Summer Make, these first rains does not resolve the well documented water shortage problems of we have in our country.

It is therefore important that we not immediately feel a false sense of security and return to our old wasteful ways of water consumption.
