A water management training for a newly drilled borehole to assist residents with clean drinking water in Zilitene in the Zambezi Region is currently underway. 
The training, a collaborative activity between the Directorate of Rural Water Supply Coordination and WATS investment, comes after the Ministry of Environment, Forestry and Tourism through their NILALEG program, drilled and installed a borehole in the area to supply water to the planned nurseries as well as nearby villages. 

Regina Mwinga, the WATS investment field coordinator described the program as one of the project's many programs aimed at remedying the inhabitants' plight. 

Mwinga said a committee that will see the day-to-day running of the borehole will carry on after the completion of the three-day training.

Dorica Sitapata, the rural water supply officer in the Ministry of Agriculture, Water and Land Reform said that the borehole will be beneficial to all residents and thus the need to train them on how to manage the water source.

Water from the borehole is fit for both human and animal consumption.
