For example, the department has implemented a number of projects to repair and upgrade aging water infrastructure, including the construction of new dams and the rehabilitation of existing ones.

In addition, the department has launched a number of programs to increase access to water and sanitation services in underserved areas.

Minister Sisulu has also been a strong advocate for the conservation and protection of South Africa’s water resources. She has highlighted the importance of sustainable water management practices, and has called for increased investment in water conservation and reuse.

Overall, Minister Sisulu has been a committed and effective leader in the water and sanitation sector in South Africa. Her efforts have helped to improve access to these essential services for many people in the country, and have contributed to the overall wellbeing of the population.
