VHEMBE DISTRICT FAILURE TO PROVIDE ADEQUATE ACCESS TO WATER AND SANITATION

For the past two years the Vhembe District Municipality has been infringing on the human rights of its residents by failing to provide adequate access to water.

Most residents of areas including Thohoyandou have been dealt a huge blow when their access to water supply was interrupted by people who are engaged in a labour relations dispute.

According to United Nations Human Rights Charter:

Access to safe, affordable and reliable drinking water and sanitation services are basic human rights. They are indispensable to sustaining healthy livelihoods and maintaining people’s dignity. Human rights to water and sanitation are essential for eradicating poverty, building peaceful and prosperous societies, and ensuring that ‘no one is left behind’ on the road towards sustainable development.

International human rights law obliges States to work towards achieving universal access to water and sanitation for all, without any discrimination, while prioritizing those most in need. The key elements of the rights to water and sanitation are:

availability;
accessibility;
affordability;
quality and safety; and
acceptability.
