Presidential Borehole Drilling Scheme Launched In Chitungwiza

Presidential Borehole Drilling Scheme Launched In Chitungwiza

The Presidential Borehole Drilling scheme has been set in motion, with Chitungwiza being the first beneficiary of the initiative aimed at eradicating the perennial water challenges.

The Presidential Borehole Drilling scheme was initiated by the Zimbabwe Youth Presidential Support Organization (ZYPSO).

Chitungwiza, located 9km south of Harare city, has been experiencing acute water and sewer challenges in the last two decades owing to the collapse of an efficient reticulation system in the opposition-led urban council.

The repercussions have weighed heavily on residents and other ratepayers. ZBC News quotes one elderly resident as saying:

We had become so accustomed to recycling and reusing dirty water, we have tap water once a week and having water at the local borehole was a challenge due to politics. For the past 15 years, water has been a challenge and as an elderly person, I couldn’t get access and ended up buying a 20-litre bucket of water for US$1, I had no option.

Tempter Paul Tungwarara, President of the Zimbabwe Youth Presidential Support Organisation said:

We are going to all areas in Harare so all people can have access to water, what we are doing is, drill a borehole, put a solar system and put taps, we are moving away from bush pumps system and putting modern systems so that everyone gets access to the water.

ZANU PF St Mary’s Candidate, Nobert Jinjika said at least 20 boreholes are scheduled to be drilled in the dormitory town and they will be used by all residents despite one’s political orientation.

ED doesn't need to campaign anymore because people are more concerned with evidence than promises. Years in powerful govt positions plus 4 years as president are all enough evidence. His worry now should be about the safety of all his illgotten wealth and which country he is going to flee to when judgement day arrives

Buying your votes with borehole water! Borehole! Not even tap? And to think water is a basic human right. Sad. Kwakaoma kugara kuChitungwiza ummm

Also why did it take them 15 years to do this? What have they done on the previous elections if they couldn't provide access to basic needs like water?

When campaigning you talk of what you have been doing not what your wish, Politics is the art of telling lies before Y2K. citizens nowadays are a step ahead and some did political science.
remember we say most Zimbabweans are learned meaning they won't listen to those who lie...
