A water utility cut supplies to the whole of Lusaka, Zambia’s capital, after damage caused by a car crash, Q-FM radio reported, citing the company.

The vehicle caused damage on the Kafue supply line, from where the city of about 2.2 million people draws most of its water, the Lusaka-based radio station said Thursday, citing a statement from Lusaka Water and Sewerage Company. Repairs will be completed in 48 hours and it will take a few days for supplies to stabilize after that, Q-FM reported.
