And watching letters to the local press, there's already a simmering tension between communities, especially after news that taps in informal
settlements will stay on after Day Zero (and apparent water wastage there, despite a media narrative about "leafy suburbs"). There's a growing
sentiment that the economic migrants from other countries and provinces who have never paid water rates and taxes here must go home immediately.
You cannot have a four-fold increase in population without increasing your resources at the same time.
The slight surplus that once existed to carry us through tough times is no longer there with the extra population pressure.
A salient point for any city that's a target of mass migration without influx control.
All it takes is one minor drought or disaster, and Day Zero is in the pipeline.
Although no open conflict yet, the possibilities are frightening.
