HARARE City Council has been forced to close part of its Rowan Martin offices due to a water crisis.
A notice at the entrance read:
“Please be advised there is no water that is being pumped into the building due to a broken-down booster pump that pump water into the building. Given the above toilets from 1st to 7th floor will be closed,” the notice reads.
One of the workers (name withheld) at Rowan Martin offices, he said that the issue is being solved.
“The problem is that our water pump is not functioning properly hence a result of poor water reticulation.
“As you can see, we have hosepipes that we have connected from outside taps and we are filling drums so as to provide water in the building since our water pump is not functioning.
“But everything is normal, though mvura yacho yagarisa asi zviri nani,” he said.
Harare City Council Acting Corporate Communications Manager, Innocent Ruwende said that the problem is being attended to.
“I confirm that Rowan Martin is facing some water challenges and we hope that it will be completed before the end of the day.
“The banking hall remains open and ratepayers are conducting business as we remain with skeletal staff,” he said.
