The residents of Zimbabwe’s second-biggest city of Bulawayo have to prepare for a new wave of water supply outages as the local authorities extend the water cuts to 96 hours a week.
According to city’s official Christopher Dube, the changes that come into effect this Friday were imposed as a result of the constantly depleting resources in the local dams.
Last month, the authorities implemented a 72-hour water-cut plan to resolve the matter; however, it appears the initiative failed to prove worthy.
“The program is being reviewed in a bid to stabilize the reservoirs and prevent them from depleting further,” Dube told the media.
The city council continues making efforts in order to prevent the deterioration.
