Vubwi lacking adequate clean water


Vubwi, June 11, 2013, ZANIS…Over 42 villages in Zozwe area in Vubwi

district have poor access to safe and adequate water forcing them to

share water points with animals.


Area councilor Raphael Mboa said most villages in the area lack water

points adding that people  draw water from a stream which is also the

source of water for domestic animals.


Mr Mbao told ZANIS in an interview that the situation was inhuman and also

posed a health threat to the people.


He noted that the area has for a long time had no borehole, saying

people have lived without improved access to drinking water.


Mr Mbao however called on government to ensure that people have access

to safe drinking water in line with Millennium Developmental Goal

(MDG) number  seven .


And Vubwi District Commissioner Velenasi Moyo said plans are

underway to drill bore holes in some parts of the district.


Ms Moyo said some points have already been identified for putting up

the boreholes in the area adding that the declaration of Vubwi as a district will

bring more development to the area.


She however assured villagers that government is committed to ensuring

that people have access to safe and clean water.
