“Public Notice — The City of Harare wishes to advise residents and all stakeholders that due to unprecedented chemical supply challenges, Morton Jaffray Water treatment plant will be temporarily shutdown for a least 48 hours commencing last night. There will be disruptions in water supplies while modalities are being worked to restore normal services within the indicated period.

I heard we used to, but the plants closed. And also, due to the level of contamination in the water, it now requires a number of different chemicals to treat the water —Tawanda Vushendibaba @GreatUshe

The company which used to manufacture those chemicals was sanctioned, Chemplex parent company of Zimphos – Cornelius Zimunhu @cktzim

Notwithstanding that the comms is late (This should have been sent same time yesterday), 48hrs is too much. No city should ever go without water for that long – Kazishe @kazishe_black

*************

We always go for longer periods weekly without water in Waterfalls – Jackson Muzivi @jhm1902

“…..for at least 48 hours commencing last night.” You are not serious! The incompetence! What kind of communication is this? Mukumboita basa rei kutadza kuona kuti hamuchina makemikari mustore room?

Why are we being told this kind of info today – Davison Mugarisanwa @damugarisanwa

This is terrible and I’m disappointed, even though it won’t affect me as my property hasn’t been serviced with water by the authorities for one and a half decades. I still receive & pay a monthly water bill, though.  Tsitsi Dangarembga @EfieZethu-

We haven’t had water for a month now – @lowe_xammi
