The project will involve the construction of water pipeline from Zambezi River to Mtshabezi Dam. Feasibility studies are still to be done hence the true cost of the project are yet to be ascertained. This is an ambitious project in Matabeleland North Province in Zimbabwe. Given the ongoing perennial water shortages in the city of Bulawayo the project should give residents direct water supply from the Zambezi River. The project will be funded through Public Private Partnership initiatives.
