Business vs People, who will Cape Town choose to supply water to

If the feared Day zero comes and the drought that currently is on a rampage in Cape Town continues then apparently the city will switch off the water supply to Cape Town except in the CBD and commercial and industrial zones.

If that is true, does this mean the city of Cape Town is choosing to give water to business but not the actual citizens? Is this even a thing?

People say that the business sector and industrial areas dont use as much water as residential areas. If this is true then i suppose cutting off water from households and still supplying the water to businesses could make sense but makes you think.

Ordinary citizens will have no water while businesses continue as always. Isn’t that putting the people second?
