Safe water for Zomba residents

United Purpose, an international non-governmental organisation (NGO), has disclosed its plans to conduct a water mapping exercise this year in Zomba district.

Confirming the development to YFM, Program manager at United Purpose, Smolden Tokoma said this will help Zomba district council in planning and allocation of resources.

The project will also help them to provide good boreholes as report indicate that most of the boreholes were not well drilled to required standards.

“The mapping exercise will help to solve some of the challenges that were there in most water points. For example, many boreholes were not well drilled and they were wrongly placed,” Tokoma said.

According to the report by United Purpose, in Zomba district companies who drilled boreholes were lacking some expertise. Currently UP has already engaged with other stake holders to work together on the exercise.

The money amounting to 20 million Malawi Kwacha has been pumped in for the project.
