He urged Mugobwa village residents to safeguard the plan and to start setting aside money for its upkeep.


Hajji Badru Mayanja, the chief administrative officer of the Kisoro district, invited locals to express their gratitude to the government for bringing tap water to mountainous and difficult-to-reach places, which will cut down on the time lost by women and children gathering water.


Bahinyuza Festus, an LCV councilor on the Nkuringo town council, claims that one of the reasons he entered politics was to advocate for his constituents to gain from government initiatives.

He continues by saying that since he joined the district council’s works and technical committee, he has accomplished numerous things, including the provision of clean water.
