World Bank provides eight million to bring drinking water to Uige

The World Bank (WB) will provide more than eight million euros to help the city of Uige build a new drinking water supply network for the population.


After the accounts have been drawn up, a total of eight million, 777 thousand and 211 euros will be made available by the World Bank this year. This money is intended to advance a project to improve the distribution of drinking water to the population.

The project is ambitious: the drinking water supply network will be 100 kilometres long, thus enabling 10,000 household connections to suburban areas of the city of Uige.

The neighbourhoods that will benefit from this new construction are the Papelão, Paco Benze, Kilala, Catapa, Candombe Velho, Quimacungo, Yomessa, Gai and Mbemba Ngango neighbourhoods.

Speaking to Angop, Emília Dias Fernandes, chairman of the board of directors of the Uíge water company, revealed that the project is scheduled to begin in March and is expected to take three years to complete.

The objective, according to the responsible, is that by 2025 the city of Uíge will have a total of 30 thousand household connections.

The work has been developed in this direction, said Emília Dias Fernandes. Between 2012 and 2018 19,400 household connections were built in Uige and in 2018 an agreement was signed between the government of Uige and the WB to improve the supply of drinking water to residents of the area.
