The residents of Hopley, a large settlement in the south of Zimbabwe’s capital, Harare, have had to take drastic measures to ensure they have access to water.

As community wells dry up, people have been forced to use a well situated in a nearby graveyard.

Contamination, from embalming fluids and decomposition, poses risks, but with experts saying rainfall will reduce a further 20%, water sources like this might be the community’s only choice.

    We are the walking dead already. Where is that fallen dictator from Ethiopia these days. He should be deported from our country as he is the one telling these mongrels how to control our people . His own people kicked him out chop chop because he was doing what these mongrels are doing to us. Get him out of our country because we will very soon.
