Zimbabweans Fear Cholera Outbreak

The water crisis facing Harare has sparked fears of an outbreak of the cholera disease

The water crisis facing Harare has sparked fears of an outbreak of diseases such as cholera, which led to thousands of deaths less than a decade ago.

Hit by severe drought, low reservoir levels and a crumbling water supply infrastructure, wide swathes of the city are now restricted to running water two days a week and have become reliant on potentially polluted sources for everyday use.

The drought has seen rivers, boreholes and wells dry up, often because of poor farming practices and building on wetlands, as well as one of the hottest summers in recent years.
