The pre-independence government in Zimbabwe initiated a borehole drilling programme for the provision of domestic water to rural populations. Dams and sandabstraction systems were put in place for the watering of livestock. A centralised maintenance and repair system was provided at a District level by skilled technicians funded from local taxation of rural people and from quasicommercial projects.
