Zimbabwe's Capital has no water

Harare – The beleaguered regime of Zimbabwe has cut water supplies to the nation's capital Harare, state media reported Monday, leaving most of the city dry as authorities struggle to contain a cholera epidemic.\r\n

Since the Zimbabwe National Water Authority (Zinwa) had failed to find chemicals to treat the water supply, the state-run utility on Sunday stopped pumping water in the capital, the government mouthpiece Herald newspaper said.

"Most parts of Harare – including the city centre – did not get water since Saturday to today (Monday) amid claims by Zinwa staff that the authority had stopped pumping after it ran out of one of the essential chemicals," the Herald reported.
