What we know about the Burundi Water Supply: The Truth in the News

The Burundian government announced that water supplies to the Burmese capital had been restored to normal.

This means that the city of about 10 million has regained its water supply after an unprecedented drought caused by the recent arrival of the El Niño weather system.

Water from this drought was supposed to be flowing into the city’s three main rivers.

But the authorities failed to restore the supply and instead began draining the city.

This is a devastating blow for the Buran people.

But how much is still to be recovered from the city?

The BBC’s Richard Galpin reports from Burundia.
