Harare City Council has hailed HigherLife Foundation, The Zimbabwe Multi Donor Trust Fund and Government for supporting the city’s Infrastructure Development Programme.
He said the aid has seen the City improve its water treatment plants, pumping equipment and sewer rehabilitation.
Addressing stakeholders and residents during the State of the City Address (SOCA) today at Town House, he said the first of the three phases of Morton Jaffray Treatment Works and pumping equipment was overhauled using part of the ZWL $ 72 million China Exim Bank Loan Facility.
“The Zimbabwe Multi Donor trust Fund invested ZWL 20 million in the rehabilitation of water and sewage pump station and replacement of water network and 5km of sewers, including rehabilitation of Marlborough sewage ponds.” Mayor Gomba said.
“The Government has disbursed ZWL 2.9 million as part of devolution funds to the City of Harare and this is being used in the rehabilitation of filters at Morton Jaffray.”
“HigherLife Foundation invested ZWL$1O million for the rehabilitation of sewer pipes in Budiriro, Kuwadzana, Glenview and Mufakose.”
He said through its own resources the city provided ZWL$15 million for urgent sewer upgrading in the high density areas with the main outfall sewer for Mufakose being the largest of these projects.
