Story by Patience Nyagato

WATER, sanitation and waste management issues dominated discussions when founder of the Green Business Team Mrs Annika Johansson paid a courtesy call on the Speaker of National Assembly Honourable Jacob Mudenda at the New Parliament building in Harare this Monday.

It emerged after the closed door meeting that the Swedish firm is pursuing a project aimed at providing clean water to communities that include Harare’s Epworth suburb.

“We are here to do water purification and to work with waste water management. Also, the third part which is very important is to circulate the water so we are also bring in circular water systems where there are sources of water. I believe there have been other companies here as well but the initiative from us is not only to sell a product, we are here to implement and provide solutions that are sustainable long term so that we are sure that this water purified. We need water purification in rural areas and that will really work out for a long time that means that we need also to start up not only us but also people in Rwanda where we have also launched the programme,” said Green business founder, Ms Annika Johansson.

Green business will be partnering local businesses in creating a solar-driven water system that purifies water and connects to households in Epworth.

The project dovetails with government initiatives to guarantee clean water to the citizenry.
