A 190 million Shillings water project intended to provide water to 6,000 people, has been commissioned in Kyeshero sub-county Kanungu district.

The water project is funded by the Kanungu district local government to bring quality water and sanitation facilities closer to over 100 villages in Kyeshero sub- County in Kanungu district. 

Erick Mutumba, the Kanungu district water engineer says Kyeshero is a water-stressed area and it is receiving a water project for the first time so residents need to protect it once completed. He, however, warned that water will not be for free, saying that residents will be paying a small maintenance fee of 4,000 Shillings per month.

While commissioning the project, the Kanungu Resident District Commissioner Hajj Shafiq Sekandi, called for the protection of water sources and wetlands, asking residents to desist from the habit of planting trees in the wetland as it has caused water-related problems in the district.

Henry Mutumba who represented the district chairperson cautioned the contracted firm against doing shoddy work and a product quality in line with bills of quantities to ensure proper accountability for taxpayers' money.

The project was contracted to Dalkam Technologies ltd.
