Harald Pakendorf talks at the UFS

Mr Harald Pakendorf (left), well-known political analyst, presenter and guest on various television and radio programmes, presented a lecture at the University of the Free State's (UFS) Centre for Environmental Management last week on the topic "Will the state be able to satisfy the growing need for quality services" as part of National Water Week.

“It is expected that we will have a shortage of water supply in South Africa by 2025. Although clean water is still provided to urban areas, smaller towns in the country are experiencing problems with their water supply. This is due to a lack of skill and capital, the application of affirmative action, nepotism and the incompetence of government," he said. Here he is with Prof. Maitland Seaman, Director of the Centre for Environmental Management at the UFS.
