Mpilo Central Hospital Goes 3 Days Without Water

Mpilo Central Hospital Goes 3 Days Without Water

Mpilo Central Hospital in Bulawayo was without running water for three days due to a burst pipe, forcing the institution to get water from boreholes.

Mpilo Central Hospital is one of Zimbabwe’s major health referral centres, catering mainly for patients in Bulawayo, parts of Midlands, Masvingo, Matabeleland North and Matabeleland South provinces.

CITE reported sources as saying water supplies were cut off to most sections of the hospital on Wednesday and were only restored on Friday after the City of Bulawayo attended to the burst pipe. Said a source:

There was a burst pipe at the Outpatients Department and at the kitchen. The city council only attended to it today and they subsequently reconnected our water.

The whole hospital was affected by the water cut but now the situation has normalised.

We were getting water from the laundry department and from the boiler. We were also getting relief from the boreholes at the hospital.

There are several taps connected to the borehole so those were our alternative sources of water.

Mpilo Public Relations Officer, Sanelisiwe Nyamambi confirmed the development adding that water supplies have since been restored.

A boiler and boreholes are an alternative in time of crisis mind you..water pipes always burst, it's not Mpoko hospital has no running tap nope just a burst pipe and was attended to... boreholes are more than plenty at Mpilo hospital, there are no boreholes crisis at Mpilo ...

How long can the boiler and laundry reservoir last? We are talking about 5,000 litres each, hey!!!

My family (a small one at that) goes through a 5,000 litre tank in 1½ days
