These suburbs have not had piped water flowing for a combined period of about two months according to the residents.
In other areas such as Kibwa, Justine Kyarikunda, a resident in the area, noted that water costs have gone up as a result of the crisis in the area.
She added that a jerry can of water in that area ranges from Shs 500 to Shs 800, and previously, it has been at a maximum of Shs 300.
Some residents however said the water shortage in these areas has been recurrent, accusing government and National Water and Sewerage Corporation ( NWSC) of failing to rectify the problem.
Samuel Apedel, the Public Relations Officer at NWSC said the corporation will send its teams to fix the problem as soon as possible.
“There is uncoordinated infrastructure development, pipes are being cut by the road contractors but our priority is to supply water to all our customers. We are not going to argue with the contractors,” said Apedel.
