Nkayi Villagers Grapple With Water Challenges

Nkayi Villagers Grapple With Water Challenges

Villagers in Ward 20, Ezinyangeni, Nkayi South, Matabeleland North Province, are walking long distances to find drinking water.

The villagers are appealing to the Government and donors for more boreholes as the existing ones are malfunctioning.

Their plight has been compounded y the siltation of available dams and rivers.

In a recent interview with CITE, Sithenjisiwe Sibanda said the available boreholes run dry leaving them stranded. She said:

The few available boreholes run out of water and we spend hours waiting for the water levels to rise.

The dams in our area have silted and this has caused problems for our livestock which continue to die due to lack of water.

Contacted from a comment by CITE, Nkayi South legislator, Stars Mathe confirmed what the villagers were saying. She said:

It is true that villagers are experiencing water challenges and the siltation in rivers, the water is at the lowest levels.

She however said there are programmes of drilling boreholes countrywide and Nkayi could get more boreholes.

The Ministry of Lands, Agriculture, Fisheries, Water, Climate, and Rural Resettlement this year revealed that both Matabeleland North and Matabeleland South have the least number of boreholes compared to other provinces.

Mapanzure gvt high school in mvg could not finish mathematics exam due lack of stationary.The was no graph papers and the pupils left the questions unanswered because of limited graph papers.Some of the students are talking of reporting to zimsec in Masvingo town.This is because the administration is corrupt and they eat exam fees and could not buy the stationary.Basure the siniour teacher and the gvt high school told the pupils that Zimsec was supposed to provide the stationary not the school which is incorrect.Mapakomhere high school nearby had enough graph papers for the exam about 4 graph papers each which is correct. Chauraya head of Mapanzure gvt high school is said to be tyrant and running currupt administration.Everyday he goes to town Masvingo using school resources but he could not buy the stationary for the poor pupils.Chiweshe the deputy head of Mapanzure high School is believed to the who was in charge of the paper 2 mathematics.I think Pindula news and the Anty corruption council of Zimbabwe should visit the school to investigate the issue because most of the stack holders and community are complaining of the currupt adminstration of Mapanzure high school. Head's office is in the school car and most of his teachers are subotaging the head.The ACCZ should visit the school and community to investigate this mathematics exams because the future of the students is in danger.Can you guys help to reach Pindula news so I could give the news in full
