Harare City Council has prioritised improving the water reticulation system, rehabilitation of roads and construction of bus ranks around the city in their 100 day rapid results initiative.

Issues of Harare’s water quality, poor roads and congestion by commuter operators in the central business district have been a major cause for concern for residents, with the local authority being blamed for poor service delivery.

In its 100 day rapid results initiative, the Harare City Council Acting Town Clerk, Engineer Hosiah Chisango said they are targeting to rehabilitate filters at Morton Jaffray water treatment works and embark on a pipe replacement programme to ensure the provision of quality water to residents.

The local authority availed its $50.2 million capital budget for 2018, with $15 million being allocated to water and sanitation and $12 million for road maintenance, among other programmes.

President Emmerson Mnangagwa is on record saying local authorities must improve their service delivery.
