Saviour Kasukuwere, minister of Water, yesterday admitted that there was no money for the Matabeleland Zambezi Water Project (MZWP) which aims to supply water to Bulawayo city.

Responding to a question by Jasmie Toffa, MDC-T MP for Bulawayo Metropolitan on the MZWP timeframe, Kasukuwere said he was not going to make a political statement to get support from people in Bulawayo on the water situation as there was no money for the project.

Kasukuwere was speaking at a legislators' workshop on government's economic blueprint ZimAsset.

The project seeks to end the perennial water shortages bedevilling Zimbabwe's second largest city, Bulawayo, by bringing water from the mighty Zambezi river.
