SOME of GLEN VIEW residents spent Heroes Day without water after an unknown person locked a community borehole along Willowvale Road.
The borehole is usually controlled by ‘community administration’ whereby residents access water after paying money but on Monday they woke up to new locks on the borehole.
One of the residents told H-Metro that people were not happy by self-imposed community administration members who are charging money to access water at a borehole drilled for free by donors.
“We do not know who decided to starve people from accessing water by blocking the borehole today (Monday),” said the resident.
“What we know is that people are not happy with few people who claim to be the supervisors of the borehole drilled by donors for free.
“They are cashing in on donated water that is why people are furious about it because every dollar counts which they are pocketing.
“It is better to take turns in guarding the borehole instead of charging donated water.
“City of Harare is failing to provide water to residents all the time that is why these so called administrators are preying on desperate residents.
