Bulawayo City Council Threatens To Disconnect Water Supplies For Residents Despite Pre-election Promise Not To

Bulawayo City Council (BCC) has threatened to disconnect water supplies for residents who owe the local authority within 24 hours despite a council resolution days before last month’s elections not to do so.

Councillors last month resolved that the local authority should not disconnect water supplies to owing residents until September. In an interview with The Chronicle yesterday, Bulawayo Town Clerk Christopher Dube said they are issuing threats to those who are not paying rates as a reminder. Said Dube:

This is a routine procedure but we’re not just issuing the notices to everyone but to those not paying reminding them of their obligations. We are not bothering those who approach council to make payment plans. I’m hoping the situation improves because collection of rates was very bad during the election season. We had difficulties fulfilling our obligations. We want residents to pay their bills so that we can offer effective services.
