There were troubled waters in the Mayega sub-village of Mikuyuni. As part of Phase 2 of the Mayega Water Project, the water distribution point (DP) at the village dispensary was planned to be shared with the families in the sub-village. Unfortunately, money got in the way! There was no way of calculating how much of the water used would be paid for by the dispensary and the amount that the families would be liable for.
Thankfully, Mayega District Council accepted that they should have foreseen the problem and committed themselves to resolve it. The Council has been good to its word and Mikuyuni now has its own DP.
The Mayega Water Project has benefitted greatly from the involvement of council staff. They have planned the water works, purchased the materials and managed the construction and installation. So much can be achieved by combining knowledge, skills and experience, and the Water Project is no exception. A very well done to the Council, Mayega village and, of course, Busega Scotland, who come together as the Mayega Water Group. They have delivered the first two project phases successfully and good progress is now being made in the plans for Phase 3.
