Now CCZ Says Most Bottled Water Is Unsafe
The Consumer Council of Zimbabwe has suddenly appeared from nowhere and warned us about bottled water.
It says most of the bottled water being sold is poor and over priced. It even says some of the water is just tapped water, bottled.
Its executive director Ms Rosemary Siyachitema, who we did not know until this story came out, says that a study was undertaken which showed this shocking trend.
She says that CCZ is ‘concerned’ and ‘sincerely worried’ by the increase in the number of dodgy companies all selling water. Yes, she used that word concerned. Concerned means you are kind of upset about it but that is the end of it. For a consumer advocacy group to simply be concerned is worrying. The fact that that dodgy ones are not named by a group that is supposed to be radical leaves us sitting in the slough of despond.
Mind you, we do know that there are dodgy waters. We have water companies we do not buy from.
But then again, with the city council not providing water to much of its citizenry, people are going to get whatever water they can. When you think of it, maybe they are both competing for who produces more dangerous water.
As for CCZ, we wonder when we will hear from them again to express another ‘concerned’. The way they are so quiet you would think that the consumers in Zimbabwe were the happiest in the world.
