Bulawayo Runs Out Of Water Treatment Chemicals

Bulawayo City Council (BCC) has run out of water treatment chemicals for the second time in less than two months as foreign currency shortages continue.

According to council minutes, less than a months’ supply of ammonia is left. The local authority may be forced to stop the water purification if supplies are not sourced soon. Aluminium sulphate, chlorine and polyelectrolyte stocks are reportedly also critically low. The minutes read:

Ammonia is at critically low levels with stocks lasting less than a month, but requisitions and orders have been done and stations are awaiting delivery. Aluminium sulphate, HTH stocks are enough for over 2 months. Chlorine is at critical 1 weeks supply.

Councillors accuse council management of poor planning. Recently, town clerk Christopher Dube told Southern Eye they are engaging the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe to rescue it with foreign currency.
