South Africaâ€™s Cape Town is fast approaching "Day Zero": when the cityâ€™s water will go dry, a global first for a major metropolis.
For weeks, residents of South Africa's landmark city, where tourists flock to its beaches and scale Table Mountain, have been held up in daily long lines, collecting water. Many are stockpiling supplies, fearing the even graver scenario that awaits.
The city is experiencing its worst drought in close to a century and has entered its third year without reservoirs being significantly replenished.
Originally scheduled for April 22, it was announced this week that the ominous Day Zero has now been brought forward to April 12 if consumption does not lower for the coastal cityâ€™s nearly 4 million people.
Cape Townâ€™s Deputy Mayor Ian Neilson said in a statement Friday that â€œdue to a drop in the dam levels of 1.4 percent, Day Zero has, as of today, moved forward.â€�
The city's leaders are attempting to stave off the crisis, lowering the daily allowance for residents to 50 liters from 87 liters, starting February 1. However, even the existing rationing has proved less than successful. Mayor Patricia de Lille accused 60 percent of residents of â€œcallouslyâ€� consuming more than 87 liters despite repeated warnings of the dire consequences.
â€œIt is atrocious that a majority of people do not seem to care and are sending all of us headlong towards Day Zero," the mayor said.
Highlighting the dire scenario, she added, â€œWe have reached a point of no return."
Helen Zille, a premier of the Western Cape province and a former mayor of Cape Townâ€”who will be directing the disaster management response upon Day Zero if it does arriveâ€”warned that â€œevery Capetonian needs to take this very seriously.â€�
When Senator Tammy Duckworth returned from a recent trip to South Korea and Japan, she brought back a sobering message: â€œAmericans simply are not in touch with just how close we are to war on the Korean peninsula.â€� In a speech at Georgetown University, she laid out the U.S. military maneuvers over the past several monthsâ€”including a nuclear-powered submarine heading to South Korea, the movement of three aircraft carriers to the Western Pacific, and the Army testing out â€œmobilization centersâ€� for deploying troops and training soldiers to fight in tunnels like those beneath North Koreaâ€”that inform this worry. In an interview with me, she said the U.S. military seems to be operating with the attitude that a conflict â€œâ€˜will probably happen, and we better be ready to go.â€™â€�

He had even attacked several Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) officers.
