Kisoro Municipal residents are protesting the unreliable water supply by National Water and Sewerage Corporation-NWSC. Residents say they only receive water once a month, which is unacceptable.

 

They say the irregular water supply has forced them to trek several kilometers to fetch water from streams. The most affected areas include Rucheribuga, Bigina, Bikoro and Kasemusebo.

 

Residents accuse NWSC of failure to upgrade their system to provide them efficient water supply. They also claim that NWSC has never come out to explain the cause of intermittent water supply.

 

Johnson Ahinshakiye, one of the affected residents from Rucheribuga, says irregular water supply has greatly affected their way of living.

Cue out: …our area."//

Jonah Rwarinda, a resident of Bikoro who deals in porridge accuses NWSC for failure to inform consumers when the water will not be available so that they store some for use. According to Rwarinda, the inconsistent water supply has affected the smooth operation of several businesses.

Cue out: …aware sir."//

Robert Mukasa, the Engineer of NWSC Kisoro branch has apologized to the consumers, saying that the most affected areas are above the water reservoirs, which make it difficult to pump water there due to lack of a generator.

 

 

Mukasa however refutes claims by residents that they only receive water once a month, saying they pump water twice every week.
