Harare City Council has announced that it has suspended the water rationing schedule as it does not have water treatment chemicals.
A statement issued by the City Fathers reads as follows:
The water rationing schedule in circulation has been suspended because the city does not have adequate water treatment chemicals to produce water that meets the schedule demand.
Our suppliers are failing to bring in the chemicals from Beira (Mozambique) due to the effects of Cyclone Idai that has affected the supply routes.
One of our local suppliers is facing electricity challenges and is therefore unable to deliver our orders.
We will re-advertise the rationing schedule once the situation improves.
