Water Crisis Worsens in Mabvuku

RESIDENTS here have been involved in physical fights over deepening water shortages, now in the second week, as the City of Harare plays truant to the genuine demands of the citizens to have water supplies restored to the community.

Sylvia Bhasikolo, the Treasurer for Mabvuku Residents' Committee told the HRT this morning that they have witnessed several fistfights among disgruntled residents as the pressure mounts over water shortages.

"There is no longer peace in our community," Bhasikolo said. "Our major fear is that there is potential for a cholera outbreak and it will be difficult to stop the deaths of people."

She said their committee was concerned that all efforts to engage the city officials on how to address the water crisis have yielded negative results.

The HRT continues to push the City of Harare to accept the intervention of UNICEF, which has potential to provide water bowsers that would in the short-medium term relieve the suffering
