Zimbabwe to supply treated water to South Africa

While commissioning a new water treatment plant in Beitbridge, Vice President Phelekezela Mphoko said that Zimbabwe has opened up negotiations to supply treated water to South Africa as part of the Bi-National Commission.

Said Mphoko:

This water treatment plant could be one of the quick wins for this bilateral cooperation since there is already an existing pipeline from Beitbridge to Musina. I am also advised that the plant will not only supply water to residents of this town alone, but will also supply water to surrounding communities within 40km radius from the town. These include Lutumba, Dumba, Nuli and Mapayi. This will no doubt result in the transformation of these places in terms of hygiene and improved sanitation.
