HARARE – Egypt’s El Sewedy Electrometers will in the coming months start assembling pre-paid water meters at a contract manufacturer’s plant being set up in Harare, a council official has said.
Harare deputy mayor Enock Mupamawonde — who led a delegation of council officials to Egypt to assess the standing of El Sewedy Electrometers — said it is setting up a plant in Harare soon.
“Over 250 000 properties need these meters. Once the plant is set in Harare, it will go a long way in transforming our revenue collection, growth and service delivery,” Mupamawonde said.
He said the Egyptian firm intends on investing $15 million in the manufacture of domestic and commercial pre-paid water meters in Harare.
