City’s Water System Health Time Bomb

ACCORDING to the report that was released by the World Health Organisation (WHO) on the state of water in Harare, the city’s water has been found to have feacal contaminations.

Samples that were taken from both protected and unprotected water sources were founda to be contaminated with total and feacal coliforms.

This is a worrying situation considering the fact that Harare is still battling to combat the cholera outbreak that has claimed more than 4 000 lives since August last year.

The Combined Harare Residents Association (CHRA) blames Zinwa for the water woes that are bedevilling the city.

The raw sewerage that has been flowing unabated in the streets of almost all high density areas —— Budiriro, Glen—view, Glen Norah, Mabvuku-Tafara, Highfield, Kuwadzana and Dzivarasekwa being the most affected.
Even the boreholes that have been sunk in areas like Budiriro have been affected due to the raw sewerage that has seeped into the water table.

CHRA appeals to the government to look into the water situation in Harare as a matter of urgency.
