Second part to the follow up project funded by Impazz Maintain. Rehabilitation of 10 boreholes in Umguza District.

Follow Up Rehabilitation (2)

For Mpilo Foundation, 2021 turned out to be the year of rehabilitation. After the successful pilot project, several new rehabilitation projects were initiated, among which a follow up funded by Impazz Maintain. This project is the second part. With the remaining budget and a new donation, Mpilo Foundation aims to rehabilitate 10 additional boreholes, providing almost 5,000 people with clean water. The villages and boreholes are located in the Umguza District, north of Bulawayo, including: Siziba, Mphafeni, Sinikiwe, Vukani, Ngulube, Gondeni, Siyathuthuka, Emasimini, Khoce and Mphafeni Mavolontiya.


This project was executed in September and October 2021. Each of the 10 boreholes have been rehabilitated, without any major problems. Generally, after the work was completed, some bags of cement were left for the community or pump minder for repairs. As an exception to the rule, community participation was poor at Vukani and no preparations were made for making concrete to build the apron and soak away. No bags of cement were given. In Gondeni, the water was possibly contaminated, as the community is known to complain of stomach problems. A request was made to the Zimbabwe Ministry of Health and Child Care (MOHCC) to test some water samples.

Rehabilitation of these boreholes provided almost 5,000 people with clean water.
