with the service in Kampala , Entebbe and Jinja Town by the British their former colonial master .
By 1965, Uganda had expanded this service to two more towns ,
And in 1972 , Uganda under the leadership of President Idi Amin Dada ,
Established the National water and Sewage Corporation (NWSC) as a government agency to manage this Human need .
But with Uganda 's internal civil wars especially between 1979-1986 , the development was indeed threatened , and so it was for this very reason that , The World Bank supported the rehabilitation of Kampala Water project in 1990 .
During the 1990s , Uganda, like the rest of the developing world , adopted the United Nations policy commonly known as The 1999 Millennium Development Goals ,(MDGs) in which safe water development was a priority goal by 2015.
And by 2004 , Uganda under it's world popular structure for eradicating poverty , commonly known as Poverty Eradication Action Plan (PEAP) 2004 , prioritized National wide safe water development with guidance from their .1999 National Water Policy together with The 1995 Water Act to meet the UN proposed agenda .
The plan was indeed welcomed locally and internationally , And so , The World Bank , African Development Bank , European community under their Joint water support project of 2006 to Uganda , The local Treasury , All together contributed multi trillion shs towards a localized development plan accounting to 99M USD yearly in the National budget for a 10 years development program .between 2004-2014 .
Indeed it sounded interesting for both locals and donor countries , for having worked together and aim on achieving development of a social need for all ,But surprisingly Uganda under it's Ministry of Water and Environment released a contradicting status report in September 2016 on this human need development while stating that ,
Only 30% of Ugandans living in Urban areas could access tap water besides , the same report clearly showed that there was no tap water system in Rural areas and so only 29% of people living in Rural Areas could access a protected ordinary water source of either a bore hole , spring well or valley dam .
So was it a question of ignorance or poverty that objected 70% of urban communities from adopting the tap water system ? OR Under estimation of the would be required resources to make the 71 % in rural area get connected to tap water system, if not deliberate discrimination or exclusion of urban poor communities and the rural population from accessing tap water system with help of The 1995 Water Act and The 1999 National water policy of Uganda ?
I need a drop documentary ,There fore , answers all these questions with interviews from the locals , Uganda authority in Ministry of Water and Environment , both the national agency for managing this human right development (NWSC &DWD ) and the donors .
