Mermaids in Zimbabwe

Sometimes Africa makes me a little sad (in a half-exasperated, half-amused kind of way):

Essential work on planned reservoirs in Zimbabwe has stopped because mermaids have been hounding workers away, according to the country's Water Resources Minister. (full disclosure - source: Mail Online)
On a completely unrelated point, Zimbabwe is still struggling with a typhoid outbreak. I wonder how mermaids cope with water-borne diseases?
