Some high density suburbs in Bulawayo are likely to face water supply interruptions due to planned maintenance works by the Zimbabwe Electricity Transmission and Distribution Company (ZETDC) in Nyamandlovu.
This will affect the Magwegwe Resevoir which supplies water to Cowdray Park, Gwabalanda, Emakhandeni, Entumbane, Phelandaba West(Hawkflight), Magwegwe, Lobengula, Lobengula West, Mabuthweni, Matshobane, Njube,Luveve,Mpopoma, Magwegwe North and Magwegwe West.
In a statement, Bulawayo Town Clerk Christopher Dube said water supplies to these suburbs will be interrupted.
“During the stipulated times, pumping from Nyamandlovu will be interrupted and may result in possible water supply disruptions for all areas fed by Magwegwe reservoir.”
He encouraged to conserve water accordingly and ensure that taps remain turned off in case of earlier completion of the said works.
“Bulawayo City Council wishes to apologise to it’s valued consumers for any inconveniences caused,” said Dube.
