THE Ministry of Environment, Water and Climate commissioned part of the US$3,1 million borehole-drilling equipment meant to drill boreholes across the country this week .

The new borehole drilling rigs and support trucks procured by Government are meant to boost water access for socio-economic development for communities projects under Command Water Harvesting Programme, which is in line with Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) Six.

Minister Muchinguri-Kashiri said. “In the just ended 100-day Programme, 78 wet boreholes were drilled country-wide and in the new 100-day rapid results programme which we started on April 11, we will drill an additional 70 new boreholes funded by our Government through the Water Fund.
