Kampala: National Water and Sewerage Corporation (NWSC) Managing Director Eng. Silver Mugisha has announced they are taking over the Kahengye water project from the Ministry of Water and Environment and Techno Fab construction citing delay of the project among the reasons for the take over.
“On Monday we are going to take over the project after receiving a letter from the Permanent Secretary Ministry of Water and complete the project so that the people of Rukungiri get water. let’s finish the project,” Eng.Mugisha said.
The communication was made after Eng. Mugisha visited the Rukungiri district to assess the progress of a 55Bn shillings stalled Kahengye water project that has been under construction since 2016, something that had actually left Rukungiri people aggrieved with the government’s poor service delivery.
TheSpy Uganda has since learnt that once the project is completed, it will boost the water supply capacity by 9.6 Million litres daily in addition to the current 600,000.
According to Eng.Mugisha, the project has taken long to be completed hence National Water and Sewerage Corporation’s intervention to seal the project and effect services to Ugandans.Of course you know NWSC’s primary service to you is making sure that you have enough clean water all the time.
Mugisha in the same vein directed the Manager NWSC Rukungiri Mr. Sam Kiggundu to make an assessment of what is remaining to be fixed on the project adding that small things remaining can’t deny people of Rukungiri water.
“I direct you to do assessment and if you can’t do it, we will do it ourselves and Commission the project so as we get out of this long lasting shame,” Mugisha to Kiggundu.
