Zvishavane Mayor Khulekani Ndlovu says the upgrading of the Mabhula Waste Water Treatment plant is at an advanced stage, a development that will benefit the local authority and residents.
The initiative is part of the government’s 4th 100-day cycle projects being implemented countrywide and is currently at 80% completion.
In an interview with Great Dyke News 24, Mayor Ndlovu said the wastewater plant will improve sewer treatment capacity and solve challenges such as continuous sewer bursts that have long been a cause of concern in the mining town.
“The plant is expected to be up and running by February next year and will rectify sewer burst challenges that we have been facing lately,” said Ndlovu.
He added that the plant will be a solution to the pollution of water bodies such as rivers and dams, as all waste will be channeled to Mabhula.
“All waste will be diverted to the plant, no waste will flow into rivers or anywhere else,” he said.
