Harare City Council needs over $1 billion to solve water crisis

Responding to questions from The Herald, acting Harare water director Engineer Hosiah Chisango said
Harare requires over $1,6 billion to solve its water woes as the rehabilitation of Morton Jaffray Waterworks will only ensure that 80 percent of water demand is met without taking into account new suburbs. He also highlighted that after the Morton Jaffray project, Harare requires $670 million for the rehabilitation and upgrade of pipelines, pump stations and reservoirs.

Said Chisango:

After the Morton Jaffray project, Harare requires $670 million for the rehabilitation and upgrade of pipelines, pump stations and reservoirs. This amount is required over a period of five years. Further to this, $600 million is required for the implementation of the Kunzvi Water Scheme. The Kunzvi Water Scheme is being handled by the Ministry of Environment, Water and Climate. Increased water supplies will also increase the sewage generated in the city and Harare requires about $350 million for the rehabilitation and upgrade of the sewage management facilities which include pipelines, pumping stations and treatment works during the same period.

The construction of Kunzvi Dam is expected to cost $850 million at a build, operate and transfer deal as
Government nears an agreement with Sino-Hydro of China.
