Francis Owot, the NWSC Director of Finance, says that the land offer follows more than three years of negotiations with Oulanyah's family, adding that the ill health of the former speaker delayed the land acquisition.
Joseph Nyimalema, the NWSC Moroto area Manager, says that their pumps broke down four days ago. He, however, also says that the prolonged dry spell, has affected the water levels and in turn affected the volume of water supply to their clients.
This comes after Eng. Silver Mugisha, the managing director NWSC told the legislators that they are only mandated to operate in cities, municipalities and a few urban town councils which are designated to them by the Ministry of water.
