Residents of Ayat Village beyond CMC east of Addis Ababa are suffering from severe water shortage, the independent English language weekly newspaper Fortune reports. Problems began about six months ago but the situation has deteriorated over the last couple of months; people living in two of the eight zones of the estate only have water 09.00-11.00 and 17.00-19.00, while the pressure is so low that they are unable to fill their rooftop storage tanks. The property developer, Ayat Real Estate Development Plc, has said the shortage is due to a faulty electric pump at the reservoir that supplies the estate but so far it seems little has been done to rectify the problem.
