Masvingo Pumps Muddied Water Into Homes

Masvingo Pumps Muddied Water Into Homes

Masvingo residents were this week left enraged after Masvingo City Council pumped muddied water into their homes.

The city has experienced water challenges over the years which culminated in the sacking of town engineer Tawanda Gozo last year for incompetence.

Masvingo United Residents and Ratepayers Alliance (MURRA) Information Officer, Godfrey Mtimba said the city fathers have failed to repair burst water pipes for three weeks. He said:

We are appalled by the slow response by council despite pleas by residents for about three weeks.

The dirty water is a threat to our health, we fear an outbreak of water-borne diseases could erupt, so we urge council to speed up the process of repairing the water pipes.

Mayor Collen Maboke said the brownish water emanated from maintenance works being done by the local authority. Said Maboke:

Our personnel have been cleaning the storage tanks and pipes so as a result of that the water came out with a brownish colour. We are working flat out to rectify the situation.

This is not the first time that Masvingo residents have received muddied water from the local authority.

In January 2021, Council admitted that it had been pumping muddy water into homes and businesses, saying the problem was caused by maintenance work that was carried out on a major pipeline.

The thing is when that happens in Masvingo, it affects the whole town. It has been three days without water now here in Masvingo. They fixed this, this morning and a pipe burst. But all in all, I think all is back to normal. 4am - 2pm, that's the schedule here.
