In my home town, Luanda town water shortage has also been an emerging issue. The hygiene levels of this small town have been wanting andpeople have been relying on rain as the sole provider of water. In t imes of drought as has been the case, they have been forced to rely on river water which is dirty.

Though not yet complete and reliable, the borehole is expected to serve the whole community and it's neighborhood all year round. The people will be expected to pay 5 shilings for twenty litres of water to serve the residents of Luanda town and it's neighboring community. Read more.
