Water was turned off in Harare yesterday.
We have had no water in our suburb for 5 months and have relied on a borehole for our supplies, but now the situation has meant that our neighbours who were relying on their relatives for water are now coming to us. With cholera raging this is the only solution we have - to help others - and we do. If this situation is allowed to go on the health of the people in the city will be even more at stake.
Businesses were closed down in town by lunchtime as office toilets were blocked and there was a serious health threat.
Above is a typical scene - neighbour helping out neighbour by filling water containers.
