Water at doorsteps for Bunyala Central schools
Schools in Bunyala Central Ward are enjoying the benefits of devolved system of government after Busia County Government availed water at their doorsteps.
St Anne’s Bunyala Girls Secondary School is one of the recipients of the County Government’s initiatives to have learning institution receive water.
The school principal Consolata Sidai said the solar powered borehole is functional and thanked the County Government for installing water at the institution, thus alleviating water scarcity.
Ms Sidai told the County Director of Public Administration Robert Muganda who was on a monitoring and evaluation of county projects appealed for installation of mass light near the water point.
Flanked by Director Communications Winston Wafula and area Ward Administrator Paul Maloba, Muganda also toured Buongo primary school where they found pupils enjoying water from the Shallow well that was installed by the County Government.
The school head Boniface Obari said the shallow well had helped both the pupils and the local community. He thanked Governor Sospeter Ojaamong administration for acceding to their demands.
Obari appealed to Muganda to have the completion of the ECDE classroom expedited so that pupils who are currently the semi permanent building can occupy it.
Residents of Mubwayo, Makunda and Magombe were happy with the mass lights that have been installed at the respective market centres by the County Government saying it had made them operate late into the night.
At Magombe Rice fields, farmers were busy planting rice, thanks to the 11 tractors which the County Government purchased for the farmers.
Other farmers were busy packing the harvested rice at the Magombe Co-operative Society offices where the tractors were also parked.
Muganda also visited Busagwa Dispensary where the Nurse in charge Roselyne Odeya confirmed availability of enough drugs.
