MASVINGO – Masvingo City, whose water supplies have become precarious to the point that Lake Mutirikwi, its sole source was last December left with only 4% supply has turned to the newly completed Tokwe-Mukosi Dam for reprieve.
Council resolved on Monday for an urgent trip to Tokwe-Mukosi by its councillors and officials and thereafter the local authority will soon approach Zinwa for water supplies.
Water levels in Mutirikwi remain dicey again this year with levels at just above 38% despite heavy floods and the fact that most dams in the country are over 100% full.
Tokwe-Mukosi, found in Masvingo Rural District, 72km from Masvingo City  has become the biggest inland Dam in Zimbabwe after its completion last year. It is 70% full in its first rain season.
Town Secretary, Adolf Gusha brought the idea of looking further south to Tokwe-Mukosi for water supplies and the proposal was unanimously agreed upon by the Public Works and Planning Committe.
The acting Chamber Secretary Vitalis Shonhai has since been instructed to organise the tour of Tokwe-Mukosi Dam.local news
