WATCH: Residents Fight Over Water At A Borehole

The water crisis is almost everywhere in Zimbabwe, that is, in both rural and urban areas. Local government authorities have been failing to provide citizens with potable water, a problem that was worsened by the El Nino induced drought that saw many water bodies drying up.

The video below is an indication of how scarce water is in the country. Residents are seen fighting for water at a borehole, at an unknown local location. Residents’ frustration is probably caused by, among other things, fatigue after very long hours in elongated queues to get water. Watch for more.

  1. Point of correction, there is no more urban or rural zimbabwe, there is just Zimbabwe full stop, where everyone must get buckets to go and fetch water, where if we dint have water to flash toilets we all find a bush, where at night we all sit in the dark snd learn to rocognise each other by the size and glare of our eyes, where we survive on basic grain like corn, where children go to school sometimes depending on payment of school fees and top ups, where we walk to our place of earning unless we want to get into a zupco through the window, eish madhodha kunzima
