BULAWAYO City Council has revealed its plans to divert the devolution funds towards the drilling of more boreholes considering the fact that the city has experienced the recurrence of water problems these years.

The concerned councillors said the funds must be channeled towards the borehole and dualisation of pipes.

Currently the city announced that its supply dams were at around 35.39% capacity  after decommissioning of Umzingwane  and Upper Ncema dams.

Council's Finance Committee chairperson Mlandu Ncube  told the council meeting that there is need to invest in the drilling of more boreholes.

"In the next few months we will not be having any water looking at the rising temperatures that we are facing in the country," Ncube said.
