water crisis in harare.jpgHarare residents have hit out at the City Council for failing to provide clean water in the capital, saying the water they are supplying to the suburbs is not well purified.

A cross section of Harare residents who spoke to ZBC News called on the City Council to provide clean water as the water currently being supplied appears not to be good enough for consumption.


Some people said some of them have resorted to borehole water which they say is safer than tap water.

However, the Harare City Council spokesperson, Mr. Lesley Gwindi said they have put in place all measures to ensure that the water they are supplying is safe.

This comes after the Harare City Council has failed to provide enough water in the capital that has seen some parts of the suburbs like Mabvuku and Tafara going without constant supplies of water for years.
