Prevail Group International (PGI) which has been contracted to drill approximately 10,000 boreholes countrywide has spread to Matabeleland South.

The team is currently installing several boreholes in Thabani village, Tsholotsho.

Apart from drilling boreholes, it is also installing irrigation facilities under the presidential borehole drilling initiative.

Prevail Group International (PGI) has already taken its borehole drilling initiative to Plumtree as it continues to provide potable clean water to rural communities.

This ambitious programme, overseen by the Zimbabwe National Water Authority (ZINWA), aims to address water challenges and transform residents’ livelihoods in rural areas.

It aligns with the government’s efforts to improve water access in remote communities, supporting both horticulture and domestic usage.

PGI chairperson, Dr Paul Tungwarara, saw his company installing at least 100 boreholes in Buhera before Independence Day celebrations at the Murambinda Growth Point.

“Our role is to provide potable water to the people of Zimbabwe, leaving no one and no place behind.

“In areas we have drilled boreholes so far, people are happy they can now access water from the tap without walking for long distances,” said Dr Tungwarara.
