Tanzania: 35 Billion/ - Project to End Water Woes in Mwanza

Posted on : Wednesday, 10th August 2016

Mwanza — Implementation of 14.5 million Euro (about 35bn/-) water project will soon start in Mwanza's Ilemela Municipality under the European Investment Bank funding.

Ilemela Municipal Director John Wanga said here over the weekend that the project, upon completion, will help to address water woes currently facing some parts of the municipality.

The director was speaking at a full council meeting, which among other things, aimed at finding amicable solution for water shortage facing the lakeside municipality. He said the multi-billion water project is expected to be implemented in the Shibula, Bugogwa, Sangabuye, Buswelu, Kahama, Nyamhongolo wards and some parts of Kisesa.


He asked the ward councillors in whose areas the project will be executed to allocate adequate plots for the constructions of the project infrastructure, including water tanks and boosters. The director was fielding questions on the shortages of water by councillors who wanted to know when the municipal council will fix the chronic problem in their areas.

Responding, Mwanza Urban Water Supply and Sanitation Authority (MWAUWASA) Acting Executive Director Meck Manyama said the authority has already executed various projects, saying so far they have completed construction of water projects costing 350m/-.

The projects target areas with acute shortage of the precious liquid, said Mr Manyama, noting that the projects have been completed in Buswelu and Nyasaka Islamila/Riverside. Construction of one booster at Mjimwema and Nyashana National Housing has been completed as well.
