China Daily - March 14, 2012

CAPE TOWN - South Africa on Tuesday called for international funding to help build a cross-border water project, which would benefit the country and Lesotho.

"We've got countries coming forward and offering us technology. They're saying they'd like to partner with us," Deputy Water Affairs Minister Rejoice Mabudafhasi said.

Mabudafhasi said the country needed foreign capital to invest in the project, which would supply water from Lesotho to Gauteng, South Africa's industrial heartland.
