Bulawayo City Council (BCC) has advised Bulawayo residents to be aware that they will be water shutdown after the water levels had dropped and were waiting for it to stabilize. BCC implored citizens not to vandalize water pipelines.
In a press release, BCC said that it would be closing water for a certain period of time until the situation is steady as water levels have dropped. BCC said it was aware of the areas without water and there will be water bowsers supplying them soon.
“The City of Bulawayo would like to advise members of the public that we will be closing the whole city until the system stabilizes,”
The BBC said it was sincerely apologetic for the inconveniences they were causing to the residents. BCC said they were working very hard to stabilize the water situation.
“We once again apologize for the inconvenience cause and we are working flat out to ensure that the system stabilizes as a matter of agency,”
BCC also called upon all Bulawayo residents not to demolish water pipelines because it would be leading the progress backwards.
Of late Zimbabwe has been facing water challenges and when the water is available, it mostly comes out contaminated. Chitungwiza Town has resorted to using boreholes and wells because of water shortages.
