NWSC plans to add over 4000 water points in various parts of the city to improve access to safe water among the urban poor.
“You cannot manage what you don’t know! You can’t just sit in office and imagine that all is ok. Working with local leaders, I will often visit the field to note feedback from our customers,” Dr.Eng Silver Mugisha.
Kampala RCC Deborah Mbabazi appreciated NWSC MD Dr.Eng Silver Mugisha’s management style. “It is a rare thing to see a Managing Director leave his office to come and listen to the people. We pledge to support NWSC initiatives to better the lives of our people,” Deborah said.
Some of the installations visited included NWSC Prepaid Water meters that enable the urban poor buy water at the official price of shs37 per 20 litre jerrycan.
The customer connect exercise will go on for four weeks as the corporation moves to better services in the city and the surrounding areas.
