Over 2 Million Residents Are Without Water In Zimbabwe
Over 2 million people in the capital of Zimbabwe, Harare are without running tap water.
This is all due to the city officials shutting down the primary treatment plant out of the fear of a possible cholera outbreak. The only option residents of Harare have is to use bottled water or get water from a well.
Zimbabwe is in dire need of water treatment chemicals to clean their contaminated water. Importing the water treatment chemicals will cost Zimbabwe an estimated $2.7 million per month.
“Everyone living in Harare is affected, they don’t have water, Maybe the situation will be resolved by tomorrow but we are not sure” – Michael Chideme, City Council spokesman
