Bulawayo City Council (BCC) has announced that there will be no water supplies to all areas in the city with effect from today due to a power surge at Fernhill Booster Station.
In a statement on Tuesday, BCC Town Clerk Christopher Dube said the power surge has affected water delivery to Tuli Reservoir and Criterion Water Works. The statement read:
