Harare City Council will shut down Morton Jaffray Waterworks this weekend to enable repairs that would allow it to improve the provision of water.
Harare City town clerk Hosiah Chisango said that the repairs would result in an increase in water supplies to about 450 megalitres. Said Chisango:
We have two periscopes that are functional, and we need to repair the others. What we are going to do is to shut down the water pumps this Friday afternoon and divers will come and carry out some work. We hope that we will be able to adjust those periscopes so as to improve water supplies to the residents of Harare.
