    Shurugwi Town Council gets $200 000 loan for water


    SHURUGWI –Shurugwi  residents of Shurugwi will soon breathe a sigh of relief after the Ministry of Local Government Public Works and National Housing approved a $200 000 loan for water augmentation.
    The small mining town has been bedevilled with water problems for a number of years now with some residential areas not getting the precious liquid for up to three days.
    Shurugwi Town Council secretary Solomon Siziba confirmed the development and said that there are 300 households that will benefit from this development.
    "We got a loan of $200 000 from our parent Ministry that we are going to use for water augmentation. This includes repairing pipes and laying new pipes among other activities. Our major focus is Sebanga, and Sebanga extension where 300 households will benefit directly from the initiative," said Siziba.
    A senior citizen Kenias Muzaradope from Sebanga said that the water shortages were so serious that they would go for three weeks without water.
    "When we came into this area there were no water problems but we are told that the pipes have become too small to serve the town," said Muzaradope.
