The president of the Republic of Tanzania H.E Dr.John Pombe Magufuli launches a huge water project in all villages in Tanzania.
According to Dr. John Magufuli, Tanzanians need water not explanations about delays after launching the water project from Lake Victoria along with the service building for emergency patients.
In his address on January 29th, while Inaugurating Isaka Kagongwa water project , Dr Magufuli disclosed how the ministry of water has been a headache in implementing big projects with some being uncompleted.
“I want the minister as well as all water engineers countrywide to ensure all water projects in their respective areas are completed… Tanzanians are tired of waiting for projects that are always in progress. These people are suffering from lack of water. “I want projects to be completed within the timeframe and sack contractors, who delay completing projects,” he directed the minister, Jumaa Aweso at the event held at Isagehe village to launch the Isaka-Kagongwa water project
Dr Magufuli said in the last five years most of the Ministry of Water’s projects were not completed, whereby performance did not exceed 30 percent of all projects launched despite the high cost.
“I want you and your executives within the ministry and all engineers across the country who deal with water to ensure the projects that exist in your areas are completed within the stipulated time or even earlier,” Dr Magufuli directed.
The President revealed that he was aware of how the Same-Mwanga-Korogwe Major Water Project was being implemented and said that it could have led to the dismissal of Minister Aweso, thanks to the latter’s speedy action against the contractors
