Pretoria – Mismanagement within the Department of Human Settlements, Water and Sanitation has to be dealt with before looking to implement the plan earmarked to cost nearly a trillion rand.  

This is according to DA Shadow Minister of Human Settlements, Water and Sanitation Leon Basson who said they (DA) were deeply concerned with the plans to establish a National Water Resources and Services Authority that would finance, develop, manage and operate the national water resource infrastructure – essentially creating another SOE. 
Basson said this would be outsourcing the work her Department was already mandated to do.
