The Bishop of West Ankole Diocese Rt. Rev. Johnson Twinomujuni has hailed National Water and Sewerage Corporation (NWSC) for their outstanding good performance and excellent service delivery to the public.
The Bishop was delivering a keynote speech to National Water and Sewage Cooperation Western Region Managers at Bweranyangi Hill on Friday. He lauded the corporation management for not only extending services to the public but also doing more to touch humanity in a various ways.
During his address, he asked NWSC staff to have love for one another and strengthen their relationship with God.
“Love is a key virtue that defines our origin, strengthens our relationship with God, and keeps us connected to one another. True love cares, shares, protects and covers a multitude of wrongs,”
He however clarified that true love doesn’t condone evil urging the audience to always tell the truth when someone is in wrong.
¶Love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own”, Bp. Twinomujuni said using words of Robert Heinlein. “Simply put, to love is to wish another well,” the Bishop emphasised.
Speaking at the meeting, the Executive Director NWSC Eng. Dr. Silver Mugisha thanked the Bishop for his leadership in spreading the gospel of love which he says unites people in and outside the diocese
Mugisha challenged the Staff to incorporate the concept of love that unites to improve service delivery and good performance in their areas of operation.
The Regional Manager Mbarara, Eng. Francis Kateeba thanked the Bishop for his wonderful message and assured the audience that it is going to improve their lives and performance.
Eng. Sam Kiggundu, the area manager Bushenyi thanked the church for always giving National Water staff a platform to sensitise the public on its services.
Last year, National Water and Sewerage Corporation was commended as one of the countrys best performing government agency
This was after members of parliament on the committee of National Economy toured the corporation project for the construction of the Katosi Water Treatment Plant in Mukono to assess its performance and found out that the project was progressing on well unlike other agencies that had challenges.
Hon. John Bosco Ikojo, the committee chair told reports that the committee was impressed with the facility and by its standards stressing that NWSC had better utilized the€150 million (app. $149 million) and called the project the country’s best performing loans.
Parliament approved the loan in 2011 and 2019 from the French Development Agency – AFD and partners to construct the Katosi Water Treatment Plant in Mukono between 2018 and 2021
