Drought forces Mozambique capital to ration water

Maputo - Mozambique authorities on Wednesday introduced water rationing to more than a million residents in the capital Maputo due to a severe drought.

The city is cutting the water supply to consumers to just 40% of normal levels, Casimiro Abreu, deputy director of the National Emergency Centre said in a statement.

About 1.3 million people in Maputo and its surroundings are affected by the restrictions, raising fears of disease outbreaks.
