Efforts shown in water irrigation programs to be strengthened
The government has assured the parliament that it intends to direct its efforts in constructing water dams in a bid to facilitate agriculture by irrigation methods in most targeted areas where such various projects are going on in the country. The deputy minister for water and irrigation Jumaa Aweso said last week in parliament during question and answer session that, the move is to keep abreast with the industrialization agenda which the fifth phase government has adopted. He told legislators that, although there are so many water dam projects which are not yet completed in most parts in the country, the government is currently looking for the money in order to have all these are complete within the set timeframe. The deputy minister was responding to a question earlier raised by Mbarali legislator Haroon Mula (CCM) who wanted to know when the government will finish construction of water dams so as to pave the way for farmers to practice agriculture for irrigation.
