Officials said Nzove II adds 25,000 m3 per day on the existing of 65,000 m3 per day capacity elevating the current total production at 90,000 m3 per day.

In his address after touring the plant, President Kagame called on leaders and citizens to work together to ensure that every citizen, especially those settled in the surroundings of Nzove II and across Nyarugenge District, reap the benefits of the new water plant.

“You have to take good care of this infrastructure and take advantage of this opportunity,” the President said.

Nzove II was constructed by Culligan International, an American company headquartered in Illinois, United States and the leading global innovator of advanced water treatment solutions with more than 75 years.

“This partnership with Culligan has more to do with impact investment and partnership than money invested or made from it,” President Kagame remarked.
