Sure, that is exactly what I think too. Water is a God-given resource that we should be able to enjoy for free. The problem is that water catchment areas are not located everywhere and therefore it is costly to transport water to the affected areas. In this respect, I can understand why the government charges people for water. The government should be able to set aside some funds to cater for affected people rather than charge them for water. That is a matter that will take some time to address and till then, patience will be required in plenty.
