HARARE – Mabvuku residents have committed to protect the water infrastructure in their communities noting that vandalism was contributing to the continued water problems they are facing.

The residents expressed this commitment at a community meeting organised by the Combined Harare Residents Association (CHRA) and the Water Point Users Committees (WPUC) in the area.

Residents said besides the water shortages which are a result of low rains, the area was also affected by a growing vandalisation of water pipes which was disrupting local water networks.

Mr Kagoro, who is the CHRA Ward 21 Coordinator said, “as community leaders we are going to work together with our local District Office, reporting cases of vandalism to council property specifically water pipes and which is increasing non-revenue water.”

The area which has faced years of a dry spell has seen growing water bursts as council has resumed pumping water into the area.

This development will see WPUC working closely with the local authorities to protect the water infrastructure in the area.

CHRA said it welcomes this development as it will go a long way in promoting community stewardship in the management of water resources.
