In the wake of the COVID 19 pandemic, Chiredzi Town fathers have resolved to provide adequate water supplies to residents who reside under crammed conditions in Majaradha area of Tshovani suburb, Hevoi FM News has learnt.
Councillor for ward 4 in Chiredzi, Liberty Macharaga expressed concern over unhealthy living conditions of the residents in Majaradha section.
” The residents are living under unhealthy conditions, so we have engaged donors who are providing saniters and water buckets to improve their sanitation,”said Macharaga.
“Council is also necessitating that the area has water 24/7 so that the people won’t go far looking for water, water will be on their door steps,” Macharaga added.
Macharaga said council has also resolved to make awareness campaigns so that residents in the area can learn ways to prevent and fight the pandemic.
“Also as council we managed engagements with the residents [Majaradha] about ways to fight the pandemic because in this place if Covid 19 gets into this place we all can perish because the place is overcrowded,” added Macharaga.
“We have however managed to cope up in this corona-virus era as there were less than 10 deaths,”he said.
At least 15people are staying in one room in Majaradha residential area.
