The drought came to an end thanks to the recent good rainfall received in the three main supply dams feeding water to the central areas, including Windhoek.

The Southwest African nation is a semi-arid country, with the lowest average rainfall in the Southern African region and frequent occurrences of drought.

"The drought is over for now, but because of environmental demand, the water might go fast," Nehemia said.
