Mwanza faces water shortages

From Daily News, Dar es Salaam

RESIDENTS of Mwanza municipality have been going without water for the past two weeks and the problem still persists.

A survey conducted by 'Daily News' over the weekend has shown that there a few areas that get very little water while most areas of the city do not get water supply at all.

The affected areas include, Mkolani, Nyegezi, Bwiru, Buhongwa, Nyamanoro, Kitangiri, Kawekamo and Lumala.

The residents in these areas were found scrambling to buy water from street vendors at the cost of between 300/- and 1000/- per bucket.

"We have been experiencing water shortages for over two weeks now. This situation is unbearable to us because we can hardly afford to buy water at such exorbitant prices," lamented one Buhongwa ward resident, Mr Maduhu Gishiro.
