Boreholes Expected To Address Perennial Water Challenges In Chitungwiza

Boreholes Expected To Address Perennial Water Challenges In Chitungwiza

Boreholes being sunk under the Presidential Borehole Scheme spearhead by Prevail International in partnership with the ruling ZANU PF party are expected to address perennial water challenges in Chitungwiza.

Residents of St Mary’s in Chitungwiza have been recycling and reusing water from dishwashing and laundry for a prolonged period of time. 

Beatrice Shenje, a young mother in St Mary’s suburb said the absence of running water exposed them to unhealthy living conditions. She said:

We don’t even have a tap here because running water is not available, so we fetch water a distance away and store it in buckets.

Mr Paul Tungwarara, Prevail International CEO, said solar-powered boreholes are being sunk under the Presidential Scheme to restore the provision of safe tap water in the suburb. He said:

The programme is progressing well so far we have sunk 15 holes and they should be 20 by Tuesday. From then, we expect to have tanked and solarised. From St Mary’s we are moving to Harare East and expect to sink 60.

ZANU PF St Mary’s aspiring Legislator Nobert Jinjika said his constituency has never seen tap water therefore borehole water is a relief.

He said they will finish installing the boreholes and President Emmerson Mnangagwa will launch them all at once. 

ZBC News reports that fifteen boreholes have been sunk during the past week in St Mary’s, with the programme targeting to complete 40 in Chitungwiza.

Most urban areas have struggled to access portable water regularly with local authorities citing the inadequacy of resources as the main challenge.

This Statement is VOID :

Mr Paul Tungwarara, Prevail International CEO, said solar-powered boreholes are being sunk under the Presidential Scheme to restore the provision of safe tap water in the suburb.

Is the borehole water going to be connected to Houses.
I myself i live in Chitungwiza , I know every corner.

Saint Mary's water pipes have eroded . Out of 24 houses only 2 houses have pipes still working properly.

The bottom line is, People need tap water not boreholes
We need new water pipes with fresh clean water from the nearest WATER WORKS.

ZANU PF IS NO LONGER THE PEOPLE'S FAVOURITE POLITICAL PARTY. THEY NOW WANT REAL CHANGE WHICH CAN BROUGHT IN BY CITIZEN'S COALITION FOR CHANGE POLITICAL PARTY [CCC].

THE CROWDS ZANU PF IS PULLING AT ALL ITS RALLIES ARE FAKE NUMBERS BECAUSE THREE QUARTERS OF THOSE WILL HAVE BEEN BUSED FROM ELSEWHERE IN ZIMBABWE.

CCC CROWDS ARE NOT FAKE. THEY ASSEMBLE THEIR TRUE VOTERS IN THAT CONSTITUENCY OR WARD. ZANU PF IS GOING TO BE SHELL SHOCKED ON 26 MARCH 2023.

ZANU PF IS WORRIED BY THE PREDICTIONS OF ZAMBIAN PRESIDENT HAKAINDE HICHILEMA, SOUTH AFRICAN OPPOSITION LEADER, MAIMANE AND KENYAN OPPOSITION POLITICAL PARTY LEADER RAILA ODINGA WHO ALL PREDICTED A RESOUNDING WIN FOR CCC PRESIDENT, ADVOCATE NELSON CHAMISA.

ZANU PF GOVERNMENT DOES NOT GOVERN BY THE RULE OF LAW. IT APPLIES BUSH LAW. IT DOES NOT RESPECT HUMAN RIGHTS AND IS CORRUPT ALL SYSTEMS OUT. EVERYONE IS CORRUPT TO THE NECK

boreholes in town in this age,todoti problem solved ere,this is rubbish,town dwellers need taped water kwete zvibhorani

I hope there is a permanent modern day solution being planned as boreholes for large communities cannot be sustainable. Continuous maintenance on the mechanical parts of the borehole and continuous maintenance on the electrical side of the solar system is required. Too many boreholes can also lead to the receding of the ground water level, making these unusable soon after end of the rainy season. Towns and cities require piped water from a central water treatment source direct to houses. The boreholes supplied by the NGOs who have been told are no longer required and should go to Ukraine, were not meant to be a permanent solution as it was hoped that the water ministry and the local government ministry were supposed to work with the towns and cities and get piped water flowing. There will be need for 24 hour security at each and every borehole and there may be need for borehole attendants who are not parties and who do not molest the girls and women.
