Togo's costly water project gets funding

afrol News, 11 July - The West African Bank for Development has pumped FCFA 5 billion into the development of a healthy drinking water project in Lome, the capital of Lome. The Togolese marketing company also contribute FCFA 125 million in the project.

The emergency project aims to ensure that residents of the capital have access to clean and healthy water at all times.

It is the second water project in Lome, but the current one is expected to see the realisation of new drillings machines, transport pipes as well as reinforce the capability of water supply in the Togolese capital.

According to the Director General of Togolese marketing company, Mr Elihoho Evénya, the project would no doubt serve its desided purpose.

“It is implemented to reinforce water supply or even double it and ensure effective distribution of clean and healthy drinking water in Lome," he said.

Due to erratic electricity, the Togolese capital has been faced with water crisis. Hundreds of people could be seen carrrying cans in search of water.

Some Togolese have called for the reduction of the unit price of water.
