Upper Gwayi Subcatchment is a statutory body that was created by act of parliament through the Water Act Chapter 20:24. Our offices are presently housed at ZINWA offices Mhlahlandlela Government Complex, our area of jurisdiction covers tributaries of the Gwayi River from where it starts to the confluence of the Gwayi and Mbembesi Rivers. Our area excludes tributaries of the Mbembesi and Nata Rivers which are covered by our sister Subcatchment Councils. The Subcatchment Council does not follow national boundaries but follows catchment areas of river systems; our Subcatchment has different local authorities within its boundaries i.e the City of Bulawayo and the following RDCs Matobo, Umzingwane, Bubi, Bulilima, Umguza, Tsholotsho and Kusile.
