Kampala — The Ministry of Water Lands and Environment has handed over 55 computers and printers worth $100,000 to district water officials.
Minister of State for Water Ms Maria Mutagamba, said the computers would enhance service delivery.
They were donated by the Swedish International Development Agency (SIDA).
She said the donation is a component of several items and services, already provided by donors.
Services rendered by various donors include training, tools and equipment to enhance water and sanitation programmes.
The Director of Water Directorate, Mr P. Kahangire said computerisation would enhance analysis and alleviate implementation constraints at the district level.
The Principal Engineer at the Directorate, Austin Tushabe, said a special computer package Arc-view, would enable district staff accomplish a lot.
They would produce maps showing water sources, location, and distribution, he said.
