•   Concern as water is sold in Chiredzi


CHIREDZI – Chiredzi residents have welcomed the proposed $4,7m 2018 budget but urged the local council to ensure that water is available to all suburbs to avoid a situation where some residents are forced to buy water from others.
This emerged during the presentation of the budget at Council boardroom on Thursday last week by Samuel Mashongaynika.
The $4, 668 920 budget which saw reduction in tariffs in many areas was presented by the finance committee chairperson, Samuel Mashonganyika. Residents at the meeting however, expressed concern at the situation in the town where some sections receive water while others don't. They said that this has given rise to a situation where some residents are selling water to others at a price of $1 for five buckets.
As a result, residents called on the local authority to introduce pre-paid water metres as a measure to stop water vending which has become rampant in the townr.
Chiredzi Residents and Ratepayers Association chairman, Jonathan Mupamombe said residents whose areas receive water particularly in Tshovani are selling water to others. He said the practice can only be stopped if council introduces pre-paid water meters.
Mupamombe welcomed the budget which he described as development oriented. He said the budget also took into account what residents demanded during consultations.
"We welcome this budget which took into cognisance residents' demands. We however, want council to put a stop to water vending by some residents," said Mupamombe.
