Water shortage has long been a serious matter in some of Kigali City’s areas so far. The routine means the areas can live without water for period of two weeks to two months while the Water Sanitation Corporation (WASAC) has earlier said the issue would have been addressed by [last] June.
Meanwhile, the case never cease to cause people’s frustration over WASAC’s disappointing and unfulfilled promise where water continues to concern people in Ntamirambo, Nyakabanda and Kimironko, among others, with the areas still struggling with water shortage situation.
Talking to Bwiza.com in a twitter chat yesterday, WASAC CEO, James Sano, said the issue of water shortage has already been addressed in Kigali, unless those who have special cases on water pumps carrying water to their homes.
Asked about the case of some areas that have long been short of water while, earlier in January, he assured that the issue would soon be addressed, Sano said, “ If you [bwiza.com journalist] stay in Nyakabanda and have been short of water for a month there, it might be a special case for only you, because others have water”
Asked if WASAC has a scheduled supervision on water supply and distribution to see whether water reaches people, Sano said, “We conduct a regular supervision but sometimes we could find the cases of damaged water pumps which might take long time of maintenance”
He revealed that there is a technical team that does supervision in the areas whose cases remain unsolved so they could be solved in the following water distribution.
He added that there are some water plants which are under construction that could be completed by August to assist the current water plants to boost successful water distribution in the City of Kigali, at 105 000 cubic meters while the areas that known to have long faced water shortage for a long time like Samuduha, Kanombe and Kimironko will wait until the projects of expanding the distribution channels are completed.
Though some areas are still struggling with water shortage in some City’s areas, Sano says efforts have been injected to address the issue.
He said, “Obviously, more efforts have been put in terms of water supply and distribution in Kigali than last year after some water projects were completed while Nzove II Power Plant, which is under construction, will be completed in August”.
