Water Project for Masasi and Nachingwea

The project should be recommenced this month (January 2013).  The first transfer of water from the source into the holding tank near Masasi has not happened so far. Pumps should be installed and then a distribution system must be agreed and organised.

The illegal extraction of water near Mtandi from the older pipeline was stopped some months ago. Providing piped water is the work of engineers. Agreements on access to that water is a matter for the town’s people to decide.

I heard a rumour that the original Masasi pipeline was terminated at the house of a local politician so that he could sell the water. Then people were angry and he had to leave town. What will happen in 2013? Can anyone tell me?
