THE government has threatened to dissolve water Boards of more than 80 district councils in Tanzania if they would not make efforts to reach the required performance target in their respective working stations.
Minister of State in President’s Office responsible for Regional Administration and Local Government Selemani Jafo issued directives today at the inauguration of the councils’ water report submitted to him at a function in Dodoma.
Report shows that, out of all district councils operating in the country, 89 council’s water Beards have shown lower level of the performance set by the ministry at a certain timeframe.
In view of this, Minister Jafo has given an ultimatum for them to show the rate of performance and whatever Board that will not reach to 90 percent performance level will be dissolved.
One Board member asked the minister through his governing body to provide for them with the capacity building that would help them perform better for their Boards.
