The Masvingo United residents and Ratepayers Alliance has dragged the Masvingo City Council to the Masvingo High Court seeking an order compelling the local authority to restore water supplies to the city.
The city has gone for more than a week without running water after two pumps broke down at the city`s water treatment plant situated at Lake Mutirikwi.
The Alliance spokesperson Mr Godfrey Mtimba confirmed the development to YA FM saying if the water crisis continues they fear an outbreak of water borne diseases.
Typhoid has hit the city of Gweru claiming the lives of 6 people and there are fears it might spread to surrounding cities and towns.
