From Daily News, Dar es Salaam

The Vice-President, Dr Ali Mohamed Shein, has reaffirmed the government’s commitment to solve the problem of non-availability of clean and safe water facing Tanzanians both in urban and rural areas, in line with the 2025 Development Vision.

Dr Shein made the pledge here yesterday shortly after inaugurating a multi-billion shilling Mwanza water supply project, owned and managed by the Mwanza Urban Water supply and Sewerage Authority (MWAUWASA), at a newly built Capripoint's Treatment Plant.

The 52bn/- project is among four ambitious water supply ventures funded jointly by the Tanzanian Government, European Union and Germany Development Bank, "KFW'. The other projects are in Iringa, Mbeya and Dar es Salaam. The VP told the people who attended the function that water was the most indispensable resource and urged them to conserve and protect water sources at all costs.
