The Zimbabwe National Water Authority (ZINWA) has embarked on a revenue collection blitz to recover more than $19 billion owed by a wide range of clients ranging from Government ministries to local authorities, irrigators and individual households. ZINWA corporate communications and marketing manager Mrs Marjorie Munyonga said this huge debtors’ book is weighing down ZINWA operations, as the revenue generated from the payment of bills is used to pay for critical inputs such as water treatment chemicals, fuel, electricity and spares. She further appealed to all clients whose accounts were in arrears to settle their bills as there is a strong relationship between sustainable service delivery and payment for services. When clients are not paying for the services they get, ZINWA consequently becomes inadequately resourced and incapacitated to provide reliable service.
