GWERU — The City of Gweru in Zimbabwe's Midlands province faces a critical water shortage as the city’s main water source, Gwenoro Dam, is running dry.
Gweru’s Deputy Mayor Taurai Demo told Studio 7 the city’s main supply of raw water, is now just seven per cent full.
Mr. Demo said as a result of the critically low water levels, council will have to decommission the dam soon.
The local authority currently pumps 45,000 mega-liters of water per day, which is just below half of the city’s daily requirement.
