The Minister of Water and Environment, about it http://cotro.com/wp-content/plugins/contact-form-7/modules/textarea.php Hon. Sam Cheptoris has Monday morning commissioned public water points in the Northern District of Kapchorwa.
The public stand posts were established by the National Water and Sewerage Corporation (NWSC) which took over the area three months back.
According to NWSC officials, dosage the takeover is part of the corporation’s ongoing massive infrastructure service delivery Plans to improve access to safe water and sewerage services across the country.
During the launch, Hon. Cheptoris, who doubles as the Kapchorwa Municipality area Member of Parliament advised residents to buy the clean water saying it will save them the heavy hospital bills.
He paid for 2000 jerrycans at every stand post which are going to be enjoyed freely by the residents.
“I have set an example and encourage you my people to follow suit. Let’s not lose our lives and spend heavily paying hospital bills yet we can buy a jerrycan of water at 50shs each,” said Cheptoris.
Each of the posts will serve between 500 to 1000 homes in the villages of London Bridge, Government Lodge, Market place, Laketet and Apokwe.
