Chi-town Mayor Pleads With ED To End Water Crisis4 years ago
President Emmerson Mnangagwa was on Friday was in the sprawling dormitory town of Chitungwiza where he led the monthly clean-up exercise.
Speaking after a tour of Flysterv, a company that recycles plastic waste to produce materials used in making polyester, President Mnangagwa challenged Chitungwiza mayor, Lovemore Maiko to find solutions to the municipality’s perennial water challenges. He said:
The challenge they presented to me Cde Mayor is that they are getting water twice per week.Feedback
I don’t know the reason. I appeal to you Mayor because you haven’t appealed to me, to find a day when you are free and come and sit with me down and present your challenges.
What we can do to end the crisis we can, what we are unable to do we will tell you.
Don’t just be quiet because if they were getting enough water every week they would produce and employ more people.
In response, Mayor Maiko revealed that the dormitory town does not have its own source of water, exacerbating the crisis. Said Maiko:
The issue of water is something critical in waste management Mr President.
Chitungwiza, with a population of around 400 000 people, does not have its own source of water.
That’s why we are trying to appeal to your highest office. We have a project that we have lined up and we need your support such that this project comes into fruition.
Since you have invited me, I will be knocking on your door.
