Lack of funds has been cited as the main stumbling block which is hampering the drilling of more boreholes to alleviate the current water challenges.
This shortage of money has seen such projects suffering stillbirths.
“If we get funds I think we can drill more boreholes which can be a better solution for the meantime while we are waiting for the construction of new dams which can turn out to be another source of water to save the community.” says Runyowa Chihoma Glen Ward 28, Councillor.
The abuse of existing boreholes by communities is also worsening water scarcity.
Chihoma said the shortage of water is affecting the plans of the Councillors to fulfill the promises they made to the people during the campaigns as many of their projects needs water in oder to be carried out.
He said he had promised poultry projects to the people but longer deliver due to water challenges.
“As a councillor I keep on repairing the boreholes in order to provide people with water in the community.
“Currentlywe have got a few boreholes and these boreholes are under pressure as we have a large population in the community, we just keep on repairing the boreholes.” he said
