Residents of Kiboga town council are concerned about the increasing prices of water due to the water crisis that has hit the town council.
The chairman Kiboga market zone, Mr Eria Mulanzi said piped water is erratic due to intermittent power outages which has caused a jerry can to cost between Shs 700 to Shs 1,000.
Mulanzi said that they had taped water but the system got spoiled.
“We request government to set up for us boreholes in the town council”he said.
The Kiboga town council mayor, Mr Ameligo Matovu said the town council has bought land where they are going to put tanks to beef up water supplies in the town.
“We have already secured a land title andthe tanks” he said.
Matovu called on residents to be calm and promised that the crisis will be contained.
Residents instead accused some of their leaders for turning a blind eye to the raging water crisis.
