WATCH: "It’s when the sun is shining that you want to repair the roof" - Lagarde
At a time when water scarcity is limiting supplies in Maputo, Matola and Boane district, 2.5 million cubic meters of drinking water are lost to leaks and clandestine network connections every month.
According to Maputo Water Company, this amount is sufficient to supply about 5,000 families for four months, and is costing the company more than 2.7 million meticais per month.
The wasted water, which goes missing mainly in the suburbs, could change the current distribution model, which currently imposes constraints on consumers.
To minimise losses, ADM has launched awareness-raising campaigns sensitising people to the consequences of vandalising the company’s distribution network.Source: O País
