Gqeberha – Nelson Mandela Bay’s water supply problems are hurting productivity at Aspen Pharmacare’s production plant.
That is the word from the group’s senior strategy executive, Stavros Nicolaou.
He was speaking on the sidelines of this year’s Manufacturing Indaba.
The municipality has been in the grip of a devastating drought since 2016 as no significant dam-filling rain has fallen in the area for years.
However, business leaders say a lack of accountability and urgency from municipality leadership in dealing with water issues has worsened the problem.
