The Constitution of the Republic of South Africa, 1996 guarantees everyone the right to access to adequate water and places an obligation on the state to take reasonable measures, within its available resources, to achieve the progressive realisation of this right. This discussion focuses on the possible implications of the recent High Court case of Mazibuko v The City of Johannesburg case no 13865/06 for socio-economic jurisprudence in South Africa.
