MASVINGO – Following
erratic water supply to the city which is blamed on a destroyed transformer
feeding into the water works at Bushmead Masvingo City Council is now looking
into the feasibility of an alternative power supply.

The City
Council recently held a press conference at which Mayor Collen Maboke said the
power at the pumps was low and, as a result, only one pump was working instead
of two.

The local
authority has since flighted a tender invitation advert inviting potential
consultants to do a feasibility study with the intention of setting up an
alternative power supply.  

“Masvingo City
Council invites registered consultants for feasibility study for alternative Bushmead
Water Works power supply.

“Documents for
the request for proposals are obtainable physically during working hours (0800
hours to 1500 hours) as from Friday 30 April 2021 at Masvingo City Council,
Civic Centre Offices, Masvingo, upon production of proof of payment of a
non-refundable fee of RTGS 500.00 OR send a request of a free soft copy on,” reads
part of the tender advert.

When contacted
for comment, Maboke said the issue was technical and referred all question to
Acting Town Clerk Edward Mukaratirwa who could not be immediately reached on
the phone.
