AFTER more than a month of dry weather, Gizo residents are soaking in the heavy rains which fell on the Western province capital yesterday.
“It has been a miracle,” says TC residents.
Families were able to collect rain water for drinking and cooking.
Up until yesterday, Gizo residents had been forced to scour the streams and drilling boreholes in search of water.
The water shortage has caused Gizo citizens to question their leaders when they will address the problem.
A Mr Andrew Koke said, “A lot of promises have been sound absolutely to the people regarding water issues but we kept questioning the responsible people over the long standing issues that why they fail to address for many years now.
“I’m very sad to hear responsible authorities always hoping for rains to come and solve the water crisis as people struggling to get water during dry session.”
