President Samia Suluhu Hassan has showered praise on the Ministry of Water for diligence and proper supervision of water projects that have shown realistic expenditure throughout the country.
The President who was inaugurating a mega water project drawing water from Lake Victoria at Kisonzo, Shelui-Singida yesterday praised the ministry’s team led by Minister Jumaa Aweso and the engineers, recommending it to be a role model for other government projects.
“The Ministry of Water should now double the pace of distributing water to people because its performance is very encouraging. I used to be greeted by women carrying empty buckets and bottles but this is no longer, the case,’’ said President Samia who also directed other authorities to ensure there is no delay whatsoever in tax exemption, work permits or clearance of cargo at the port for expatriates in the water sector.
