An abridged report from the 2014 Annual General Meeting Statement.
Our operations continue to exhibit a positive trend despite the persistently unfavorable trading conditions such as high cost of energy and increasingly fluctuating prices of water treatment chemicals and labour. The new legislation that introduced VAT on water chemicals and increased VAT to 16% also exacerbates the rough business environment and affects our turnover.
The conclusion of the expansion of Dunga Treatment Plant stabilized water supply to the city. The installed water capacity increased to 46,000m3/day from 22,000m3/day. This enables us to reliably provide water to sections of the population that was not adequately supplied. The coverage has consequently increased to 63%, up from 58%.
Over the past year we expanded water coverage to include Nyamasaria, Usoma, Manyatta, Dunga and Bandani with support from WTSF and other partners.
