Load-shedding Worsen Gweru Water Challenges

Gweru is set to be without water for five days per week due to electricity problems after the Zimbabwe Electricity Transmission and Distribution Company introduced a tight load-shedding schedule.

In a statement last week, the Gweru City Council said power would be cut for six to 10 hours per day at their main water suppliers, Gwenoro and Range Booster. Said the local government:

We would like to advise residents, clients and stakeholders that power will be switched off for 10 and six hours respectively at Gwenoro Water Works (G2) and the Range Booster (G8).

Hence, we will not be pumping for 16 hours on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday owing to the recently released national 2021 load-shedding programme by ZETDC (Zimbabwe Electricity Transmission and Distribution Company).

We, therefore, encourage residents to use water sparingly as some areas will not receive water at all on these days.

Gweru Residents and Ratepayers Development Association Trust executive director David Chikore Saturday said the latest development, coupled with occasional water problems was likely to expose the city to water-borne diseases.

Gweru water challenges have intensified when the city has for months been facing challenges in pumping water as a result of incessant pipe bursts caused by ageing infrastructure.
