Zimbabwe – On Wednesday, President Emmerson Mnangagwa revealed that his government was working on replacing the old sewer infrastructure installed by the Rhodesian regime.
The sewer is constantly bursting in Harare that leads to the outbreak of waterborne diseases such as the deadly cholera epidemic.
He said this after touring the worst affected high-density suburb, Glen View and a hospital in the capital Wednesday.
Mnangagwa said: “My administration will prioritise funding of the national health system.
“We are raising money which has been coming in daily so that we fix the burst pipes at Morton Jeffery Waterworks and the central business district as well as the suburbs.
“We have been told that most of these pipes are old and are bursting at any given time, so we have found some well-wishers who are helping us.”
