National Water and Sewerage Corporation (NWSC) has finalized plans to construct its own institute to train staff in water related courses. The new institute will be located in Mbuya,
“We want managers who understand the technical, financial and commercial aspects of the water business. We have been concentrating on vocational education for technical level staff. We have engineers who do not understand the financial aspects of our business and have staff handling our finances who do not understand the engineering side of our business,” Dr. Silver Mugisha the NWSC Managing Director, told journalists last week in Kampala.
Dr. Mugisha revealed that other innovations they intend to introduce include; assembling their prepaid water meters by developing the software. They also intend to start producing charcoal from the sewerage sludge which is cleaner and environmental friendly rather than depending on wood fuel.
The NWSC boss said that this is part of the organization’s corporate plan running from 2018-2021.
