RBZ Agrees To Give Harare City Forex To Buy Water Treatment Chemicals

RBZ Agrees To Give Harare City Forex To Buy Water Treatment Chemicals

The Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe (RBZ) has agreed to provide Harare City Council (HCC) with foreign currency to buy water treatment chemicals to improve the potable water supply in the capital.

This came after a meeting on the water situation which was held last week between RBZ and HCC where RBZ governor John Mangudya was present.

RBZ also agreed to provide foreign currency to import 15 service delivery vehicles from South Africa, NewsDay reported citing Harare mayor Jacob Mafume. He is quoted as saying:

We met RBZ authorities last week and we agreed to find a lasting solution on the issue of water in our city. The RBZ agreed to provide us with the much-needed foreign currency so that we can buy the water chemicals for treatment of water.  Once we have the figure, we will announce the development.

We are happy that the RBZ has agreed to meet some of our challenges.  We also await 15 service delivery trucks which are outside the country because the contractor was affected by the foreign currency challenges, and has been failing to get the required currency. The contractor needs at least US$1,2 million dollars to import the trucks.

In a statement earlier published by Pindula News, the local government authority said it had resolved to start rationing water citing challenges in water production.

Some suburbs are going for weeks, months even, without water exposing residents to diseases.

Citizens as you can see the central government is working hand in hand with the local authorities. The noise you hear the Twitter president and his goons is pure politicing nonsense and lies.
The council has realised it cannot let people suffer for the sake of politics just to appease the Twitter president that's why he is being defied left right and center.
CHAMISA WAPERA BASA MA ELECTION ASATI ATANGA.
MA MP AKUTIZA HWENDE WAKUTIZA SIKHALA UCHAKURAMBA

Bush Lawyer I really think it's either you are a goon or you are just pretending not to see reason What has happenned here has actually exonerated our city fathers The actual problem is the shortage of foreign currency in the country not mismanagement as you always say hence the Central Bank's intervention Your analysis of this issue only shows that you are shallow-minded What has the Sikhala issue got to do with all this? Sometimes silence is golden

City councils should not be begging for Forex from the Reserve Bank to the point of journalists write that it has agreed to provide money when it involves peoples lives.
