Harare City Says "Incessant Power Cuts Have Affected Scheduled Water Rationing Scheme"

Harare City Says

Harare City Council (HCC) has said incessant power cuts have affected the scheduled water rationing scheme.

The local government authority announced at the end of November that it would start rationing water citing challenges in water production.

In a statement seen by Pindula News, the local government authority said efforts were being made to establish a sustainable solution. Read the statement:

Water Status Update

The Environment Management Committee has resolved that Council rations water in the wake of suppressed water production.

Our local aluminum sulphate supplier is facing production challenges while the delivery of the imported granular substitute has also been inconsistent thereby affecting portable water production and subsequent equitable distribution to residents of Harare.

On Sunday Council received four loads of imported granular, aluminum sulphate with a further 16 loads still enroute from Beira to Harare.

Production at Morton Jaffray Water Works currently stands at 136 megalitres out of an available capacity of 450ML and Prince Edward 78.

All efforts are being made to work out sustainable solution to the problems.

Residents are therefore encouraged to use availed supplies conservatively all the time they receive water.

All inconveniences caused are sincerely regretted.

In the latest update gleaned by Pindula News, the city fathers said the schedule had been disrupted by power cuts. Read the statement:

The City of Harare wishes to advise all the residents and other stakeholders that the incessant power cuts have affected the scheduled water rationing scheme. Some parts of the city which receive water through a series of pumping will be greatly affected. Any inconveniences caused are sincerely regretted.

Zimbabwe imports a total of 250MW from neighbouring countries and that is not enough to cover the deficit.

According to a power update by the Zimbabwe Power Company (ZPC) on 5 December 2022, all power generators were contributing a combined total of 501 MW against a peak demand of 2 200 MW.

You see Mr Tembo, you hav know come to accept the abnormal as normal. The fact that power shortages have become part and parcel of our daily existence does not absolve service providers of their duty. City of Harare is within its rights to point out the source of its woes.

Central government, to wit, ZANU government of the past 44 years has failed us.

Let us not beat about the bush.
Failures have no room in society
