ZINWA Procures 40 Drilling Rigs, Targets 35 000 Boreholes By 2025

ZINWA Procures 40 Drilling Rigs, Targets 35 000 Boreholes By 2025

The Zimbabwe National Water Authority (ZINWA) has procured 40 drilling rigs and has taken delivery of one of the rigs, with the rest expected to be delivered during the first quarter of 2022.

This was revealed by ZINWA corporate communications and marketing manager, Marjorie Munyonga in an interview with The Sunday Mail.

Munyonga said the drilling rigs will be used to support the Presidential Rural Horticulture Transformation Plan which will see the drilling of 35 000 boreholes countrywide by 2025. She said:

ZINWA has started receiving borehole drilling rigs as it prepares to implement the drilling of 35 000 boreholes that will anchor the Presidential Rural Horticulture Scheme.

The Authority has already taken delivery of one rig (drilling rig and support truck), while the rest of the rigs are expected to be fully delivered in the first quarter of 2022.

The high capacity rig, which ZINWA has received, has a capacity to drill to a depth of up to 500 meters.

The drilling rigs are expected to be distributed evenly across the country’s eight rural provinces.

I AM HAPPY THAT ZINWA HAS PROCURED 40 DRILLING RIGS WHOSE DELIVERY IS EXPECTED IN THE FIRST QUARTER OF 2022. ZINWA'S INTENTION IS TO DRILL 35000 RIGS IN THE COMING 4 YEARS.

THIS IS A GOOD IDEA BECAUSE IN TIMES OF DROUGHT DOMESTIC ANIMALS DIE FROM LACK DRINKING WATER. PEOPLE DRINK UNPURIFIED WATER FROM [ MIFUKU ]. THESE RIGS WILL LESSEN THESE PROBLEMS.

PROVIDED CORRUPTION DOES NOT CREEP INTO THIS PROGRAMME. SOME SHALL BE COMMANDEERED TO CHEFS RESIDENCES AND FARMS TO CORRUPTLY DRILL BOREHOLES AT.

THESE RIGS WILL BE OF BENEFICIAL TO COMMUNAL COMMUNITIES BECAUSE THE PRESENT BOREHOLES HAVE BROKEN DOWN AND CAN NO LONGER BE REPAIRED.
