Kwimba residents applaud govt for improving  water services

KWIMBA residents in Mwanza Region have commended the government efforts towards improving water services in the area following completion of over 5bn/- Ibindo water project in Nyambiti Ward.

They expressed their gratitude during the 2023 Uhuru Torch race in the district this week, saying that the project will be of great meaning to them as it will help them save time they were spending in searching for the precious liquid.

“We have been spending a lot of time searching for water which was still not safe because we collected it from unreliable sources,” said one of Ibindo Villagers, Mr Fabiani Magesa.

District Rural Water and Sanitation Agency (RUWASA) Manager, Engineer Godliver Gwambasa explained that the project that kicked-off in January, last year, is benefiting about 5,000 residents.

The project was implemented by the two contractors, namely the PET Cooperation LTD   and Otonde Construction & General Supplies LTD.

“It is a water well project from Nkalalo Village with the    capacity to produce 19,800 litres per hour. It has increased access to clean and safe water service in the district to 76 per cent, from the past 54 per cent,” she said.

District Commissioner (DC), Mr Ng’wilabuzu Ludigija, expressed gratitude to the sixth phase government that keeps on availing and expanding social services in the area.

Uhuru Torch race leader, Mr Abdallah Shaib, commended the status of development projects’ implementation, urging Kwimba residents to safeguard their own benefits, including future generations.

The seven projects, worth over 2bn/-, were inspected and launched in Kwimba during the Uhuru Torch race, including the construction of Budushi Health Centre and Mwabilanda Livestock Feed Farm.

Others were new Kadashi ‘B’ Primary School, Malya Environmental Conservation, a-1.36 kilometre Ngudu road, as well as the launch of Umoja youth group.
