Health Disaster Looms In Ruwa

A health hazard is looming in Ruwa with the Ruwa Local Board admitting that it is discharging raw sewage into Ruwa River due to a shortage of land dedicated for treatment of sewage.

Ruwa Local Board secretary Kumbirai Madanhi said that there is an urgent need for more land to avoid a health disaster. He said:

We have a challenge on sewer reticulation, it is flowing into the Ruwa River and we are having a geographical challenge.

It is a potential risk area which needs to be addressed, but unfortunately, we do not have land to use for that purpose.

… We have been putting pressure on the Ministry of Local Government, Public Works and National Housing, as well as the Ministry of Lands on the issue.
