THE Bulawayo City Council has embarked on a massive water disconnection exercise to force defaulting residents to settle their bills.
In a statement, the Town Clerk, Mr Christopher Dube, said the municipality was disconnecting water supplies with immediate effect.
He said the exercise was meant to encourage residents to make payment plans.
"The City of Bulawayo would like to advise residents and members of the public that we will be disconnecting water supplies with immediate effect on all residential and commercial properties whose accounts are in arrears.
Mr Dube said payments can be made at all district offices and at the Revenue Hall.
Residents were encouraged to make use of plastic money and electronic payments platforms.
