Authorities in Bulawayo announced that access to tap water will be limited to one day a week from Friday, May 15, as reservoir levels continue to fall. Bulawayo has been affected by a drought since 2019, reducing water levels in three dams to 30 percent capacity, with three additional dams decommissioned due to low water levels. Authorities have been gradually implementing harsher rationing measures since February 2019, and further restrictions remain likely should the drought continue.
Individuals in the affected areas are advised to conserve water, stock up on bottled water, keep abreast of the situation via local media outlets, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
