The Managing Director of the National Water and Sewerage Corporation, Eng. Dr. Silver Mugisha together with other officials from the corporation have Wednesday carried out an inspection of water and sanitation facilities around the Kampala city.
The tour, according officials was aimed at recording feedback from beneficiaries of NWSC projects in the city for better service delivery.
