CHIREDZI – Chiredzi West MP, Farai Musikavanhu has installed a solar system, tape and tank at a borehole in Ward 5 giving easy access to tape water for the affected residents.
The Ward had for 20 years run on a manual borehole.
Musikavanhu said water is a basic need which residents should access freely.
“I used part of Constituency Development Fund (CDF) to install a solar system at the borehole so that people won’t have to use the manual borehole,” said Musikavanhu.
He said that he also did the same for Ward 3 which is facing similar water challenges.
“We also installed a solar system and a tank in ward 3 after we realised that the ward has more elderly residents which becomes difficult for them to use manual borehole,” said Musikavanhu.
Ward 5 councillor Blessing Mazinyani hailed the MP for the move.
Ward 5 residents also welcomed the move.
