US$4m for Mutare  water supply

Chipo Katsidzira Manicaland Correspondent
Mutare City Council is expecting to receive US$4 000 000 before the end of this year from the African Development Bank for the Dangamvura water system.

Mutare City Council public relations officer Mr Spren Mutiwi said the money would help them upgrade water mainlines to solve the plight of Dangamvura residents who are currently experiencing water shortages.

“The money is going to be delivered before the end of this year and we are looking forward to solve the water crisis in Dangamvura as soon as we get the money,” Mr Mutiwi said.

He said the council will not receive the money in cash due to the scarcity of the US dollar in the country, but they are going to receive the materials which they are going to use to complete the project.

He also added that the completion of the project will also be an advantage to the areas surrounding Dangamvura such as Fern Valley because it will become easy for the council to supply water to these areas.

“The completion of the pipeline will ensure reliable water supply in Dangamvura and will also help the council to supply water to supply water in the surrounding areas such as Fern Valley,” he added.

“We are hoping to get the funding as soon as possible because this is an advantage to the council as it is going to give out less on the project and save more money for other projects,” he said.
