Uganda: Kamdini connected to water distribution system
29 July 2009
A package of 650 million Shillings (310,000 Dollars) has been released in order to connect the town of Kamdini in Uganda to the water distribution network.
Dominic Kavutse, member of the Ugandan Water Ministry, made the announcement regarding the financing this week during a press conference in the presence of the inhabitants.
This project is being financed in part by the Ugandan State, the Austrian State, and two development agencies, the Danish Danida and Swedish Sida.
Dominic Kavutse also stated that the work should be completed by September 2009, and added that 44 other towns in the regions of West Nile, Lango, and Acholi should also benefit from the project.
Betty Omar, local deputy, was pleased by the announcement of the project, but expressed her desire to see the Government also investing in crop irrigation.
