Under control: Water consumption is now safe in Gweta

After a month of experiencing underground water contamination owing to the wrath of the recent floods, Water Utilities Corporation (WUC) has finally certified Gweta water safe for human use.

The contamination and its daring effects left villagers in the lurch. Chairperson of Gweta Disaster Committee Ledule Baraki explained that though the WUC provided water through bowsers, it was not enough as some villagers could go up to two days without accessing water.

“They were only using two bowsers though this is a huge village of more than 8,000. They were bowsing 80 killometres away in Phuduhudu village, so the distance caused the inconvenience,” Ledule said. Though advice was put out to people not to drink the water, we assume there is a possibility some drank because there was water scarcity.
