CAPE Town cops confiscated water from a car washer on Friday and gave it to a resident.
They inspected car washes in four areas to see whether they were complying with water restrictions.
The car washer in Delft had several buckets of water, despite advertising his business as waterless.
When officials asked him why he had so much water, and where he was getting it from, he said he had fetched it from a nearby canal.
But officials didn’t believe his story as the water in the buckets was much cleaner than the canal water. They confiscated it and gave it to a resident. The upset car washer was arrested pending investigations as to where he got the water!
