LOWER Ncema Dam finally spilled yesterday, 17 years after it last did so with the Bulawayo City Council saying water in its supply dams will last up to November 2020.

Upper Ncema has to spill first before substantial amounts of water can collect in Lower Ncema, which is downstream. The former spilled last Friday, bringing much relief to Bulawayo as at one time both dams were decommissioned.

Mtshabezi Dam started spilling on Monday while Insiza Dam started spilling last month.

Bulawayo City Council senior public relations officer, Mrs Nesisa Mpofu said Lower Ncema last spilled in 2000.

She said water in Bulawayo supply dams will last up to November 2020.
