Joy as Rukungiri Woman MP donates water tank to residents of Nyarusjanje, vow to support her come 2026


The people of Bunono village, Bunono Parish, Nyarushanje Sub County, in Rukungiri district have received a 5,000-liter water tank as part of Hon. Natukunda Midius Kaharata’s effort to find a solution to the problem facing the water and sanitation sector in her area.

Since the people of Bunono live in a mountainous terrain and must travel far distances in search of water, according to Hon. Natukunda Midius, she decided to provide them the storage tank to help them store water saying that water is essential for life.

Natukunda continued by saying that she is also keeping the commitment she made to advocate for better services for her constituents during the 2021 general elections.

Hon. Natukunda explicitly mentioned that this is one of the tanks she pledged to give to schools, churches, and hospitals as a means of addressing the issue of water shortage during this year’s belated Women’s Day festivity in Rukungiri.

In order to reassure the community that more tanks will be placed in places where water is scarce, she noted that one of the tanks had already been installed at the Bwambara Health Center, Ndere Health Center, Rwabarara, and now in Bunono Village.


Prior MPs were unable to fulfill one of the long-awaited demands from residents, Gumisiriza John, the area chairman of LC1, and Mary Ruzoora, the chairperson for women in the cell told our reporter until Hon. Natukunda Midius stepped up.

The area chairperson LC1 thanked Hon. Midius Kaharata for her kind offer and promised to keep the tank in good working order.

Area leaders described how they had been traveling long distances in search of water and occasionally paying for it from taps.

In front of the general elections in 2026, they swore to continue supporting President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni and MP Natukunda.


Some of the beneficiaries, including Julius Ishungyisa, Nancy Aharizira, and Tusiime Joy, thanked their Woman legislator for taking an interest in their lives and said they had been suffering silently without assistance.

They continued by saying that their children had missed school due to spending a lot of time traveling significant distances in search of water, especially in the morning.

Other locals, particularly women and children, praised their Woman member of parliament, Hon. Natukunda, for considering them, noting that they no longer had to go far to acquire water because they could now have it right at their doorstep.
