The Board of Rand Water, largest water utility in the Southern Hemisphere, and supplier of drinking water to Gauteng, last year became dysfunctional and useless following disruptive and destructive behaviour by two non-executive directors or so its chairperson Jean Ngubane reported to then Water Affairs Minister Buyelwa Sonjica.
